Description Our study is related to the ongoing project „Circular Design TOOLS for product integrity“ (ŽIEDIS). Most companies are currently profoundly rooted in a linear approach to growth - make, use, dispose, researchers and entrepreneurs, individual innovators – the generators of new knowledge and innovative product ideas, lack the design and circular capabilities. As a result, they meet serious challenges while developing them into products in line with circular economy principles. The project proposes to empower the CE supportive environment by developing CIRCULAR DESIGN TOOLS – CD TOOLS tailored for today's innovators from different industry sectors to create products with higher integrity. If you have ideas how to engage participants of the pre-acceleration program pilot or you have experience how to evaluate the impact of the digital learning tools, maybe you will want to share your thoughts with us? We would like to get your feedback on our action research design.
