Digital Materials Passports are a concept of collecting and sharing product data throughout its entire lifecycle. This opens the door to a sustainable future by revealing material compositions, recycling rates, and environmental impacts. It’s a key step toward a circular economy. However, implementing this type of business and technological change can be difficult to achieve if organisations neglect the people, cultural and organisational impacts.

Join researchers from the Institute of Work Psychology, Sheffield University Management School to find out more about the important human factors to consider when implementing Digital Materials Passports.

  • Are you part of materials-intensive industries such as steel production, manufacturing, automation and construction?
  • Are you engaged in digital change or implementing business models in your organisation?
  • Do you have insights into such change through your role in engineering, production, technology, operations management, supply chain management, or human resources?

If you answered yes to any of these, this workshop is for you.

What the workshop involves:

Engaging presentations: Explore a future scenario of how jobs, work processes and structures can be designed to support your organisation and supply chain with Digital Materials Passports

Interactive session: Exchange best practices and experiences among participants

Contribute your insights to help advance research and shape the future of this transformative concept in materials-intensive industries

This workshop provides access to new opportunities and innovative ways of working.

The insights gathered will be used to create a valuable online resource for organisations and shared with you on completion.

We hope you can join us!
