Closing material loops in the health tech sector


Details of the Challenge:

Idea generation and solution search via Open Innovation for two subtopics:


A) Take-back logistics for existing health-tech products.
B) Design of future, circular health-tech products

We go in search of answers to questions:

  • What a circular model might look like

  • how the closing of the loops could be handled logistically,

  • which partners would be needed for the concrete implementation,

  • what legal hurdles would have to be overcome,

  • how future products would have to be designed, to make closing the loops easier,

  • how solutions could be developed across sectors or by merging several companies,

  • in which areas there is a need for research?
