Products and services to ensure a high standard of living worldwide are linked to the use of natural resources, which are limited and not evenly distributed. The use of these resources is also linked to environmental impact over all stages of a product life cycle from material extraction, transport and manufacturing through usage to the end-of-life. Future engineering solutions will have the potential to address above global challenges by providing products, services and processes taking into account local capabilities and constraints to achieve an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable society.
The joint research group contributes to this vision with an one-stop, cradle to cradle development of technologies and knowledge in a multidisciplinary and international environment. Both cooperation partners are leading research groups in these areas for many years and will engage in a collaborative research group in order to develop appropriate concepts to encounter global challenges. Therefore, the following goals are being pursued to establish a Joint German-Australian Research Group:
- Coordination of resources
- Establishment of mutual standards
- Joint studies and publications
- Identification of future research directions
- Joint research applications and projects
- Cooperative, research-oriented structure for education
