Ecodesign the future, second edition dedicated to batteries

From July 13, they are open online registration (at this link) for 30 students, recent graduates and graduates in various disciplines who wish to specialize in sustainable designcarries out projects of batteries and charging systems in a round key.

Called “Ecodesign the future: batteries edition“And is the second continuing education course arranged and launched by and Erion Energythe consortium of the Erion system dedicated to the sustainable management of used batteries and accumulators, designed for young students and recent graduates interested in studying issues related to sustainable production and consumption in a rapidly growing sector such as ecological conversion.

Following the success of the first edition, “Ecodesign the future: packaging edition “ realized together with the Erion consortium dedicated to packagingthe two realities have decided to renew their commitment in favor of training experts who can contribute to the growth ofecodesign andeco-designwith a focus on the design of batteries and charging systems in a circular perspective.

The European battery industry is undergoing a phase of extraordinary growth, marked by investment in the European Battery Alliance initiative and the forthcoming publication of the European regulation on the value chain in this strategic sector “- he explains Danilo Bonato, Erion Energy’s general manager and member of the workshop promoter committee – “With these premises, our extended producer responsibility system is representative over 1,000 companies which places batteries and accumulators on the national market, is proud to announce the second edition of the advanced course “Ecodesign the future: batteries edition” which aims to educate the young eco-designers of the batteries of the future, and which comes after the extraordinary success of the pilot with a focus on green packaging design “.

The training course

The course, which is completely free for participants, is held from October 18, 2022 to January 29, 2023and includes an integrated plan for didactic and practical activities.

University students and female students and recent graduates in design / engineering, economics, humanities or science faculties will deal with teachers and experts of the sector, professionals and academics from the main public and private educational institutions involved in education to the transition to a circular economy model: Department of Management of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa, Milano Polytechnic, Torino Polytechnic, University of Brescia, Isia Roma Design.

Among the teachers who will accompany the students to this second edition: Danilo Bonato – General Manager of Erion Compliance Organization and Erion Energy; Silvia Bodoardo – Electrochemistry Group, DISAT- Department of Applied Science and Technology, Politecnico di Torino; Gianmarco Bressanelli – Researcher, RISE Laboratory at the University of Brescia; Paolo Crescenti – Designer, lecturer at the Politecnico di Milano and ISIA Roma Design; AndLisa Delli Zotti – Service and graphic designer, teacher at ISIA Roma Design; Giovanni Dotelli, Professor of Materials Science and Technology – Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering “G. Natta ”, Polytechnic in Milan; Natalia Marzia Gusmerotti – Researcher at the Department of Management at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa; Marco Ottaviani – Consultant for the regulatory, environmental and safety aspects of batteries, coordinator of the environmental area of ​​ANIE-CSI, Marco Pietrosante – Designer and university teacher.

In addition, students will have the opportunity to interact with representatives of key companies linked to the circular economy, to network, exchange know-how and create fruitful and virtuous connections: in addition to the presence of Alessandro Frigerio Advanced Power Solutions Nv and President of Erion energy And Danilo Bonato – General Manager of Erion Energy, students will meet Cavaliere del Lavoro Federico Vitali – FAAM Founder – Vice Chairman of FIB SpA (Seri Industrial SpA Group) e Stefano Sordelli, Future Mobility Director, Volkswagen Group Italia SPA

After the theoretical lessons, a project ecodesign workshopwhere young students will be stimulated to develop sustainable ideas and conceptswhich is inspired by recovery and to re-valuation of natural resources employed in goods and services, materials, energy and space.

The design workshop

Participants, divided into 10 working groups, will be taught to do prototypes of batteries and environmentally friendly charging systems in accordance with the new European Regulation. At the end of the course, students will design 10 new “eco-design” concepts, based on recyclability, recyclability and sustainability. The most deserving authors will then have the opportunity to present their ideas in the presence of some representatives of important companies in the sector, who will award the winning project in the Temple of Italian Design, ADI Design Museum in Milan. A unique and avant-garde training opportunity, designed to accompany students through a theoretical and practical educational path.

“To promote the transition to a circular economic model, education and innovation are essential elements for reconsidering the dynamics through which design and production are carried out,” he explains. Marica Di Pierri, CEO of “Because of this it is obliged, in addition to information, to deepen and culturally promote a change that can no longer be postponed, also on the educational front – he adds -. “Ecodesign the future: batteries edition” it is the second of the courses organized and co-promoted by the magazine, aimed at two topics relevant to the circular economy, that of eco-design and that of batteries. “

Sponsored byADI – The Association for Industrial DesignfromIsia – University Institute of Italian Design and from Polyart of Anconathe project intends to create virtuous connections and moments of confrontation between institutions, universities, companies, designers and students.
