Article
The new Circular Economy models prompt designers to relocate artefacts within socio-technical systems in which the value of the product, its components, and its materials are maintained and not wasted. Design tools such as product disassembly are not only gaining new impetus in the design field but are also becoming important educational resources....

Attention to food waste is an increasingly growing phenomenon today, especially in the context of a circular economy. The InnovaEcoFood project investigates the use of by-products of the Piedmontese rice and wine production chains to valorize their untapped potential in the food sector by applying the Systemic Design approach. We collected, systema...

The role currently played by the fashion industry in contributing to the degradation of natural systems is increasingly being acknowledged. Acting, in terms of information flows, from a systemic perspective, not only represents a parametric adjustment, but also a reinforcement and a weakening of an existing cycle. This involves the generation of a...

La emergencia de salud Covid-19 ha cambiado nuestros hábitos y comportamientos de compras, hábitos alimentarios y también la relación con los embalajes. Para muchos modelos de negocios la pandemia representa un punto de inflexión; para otros, la crisis ha sido la prueba de vulnerabilidades ocultas y de una potencial insuficiencia para el mundo cont...
Chapter
Today everyday life is characterized by the interaction with an ever-increasing flow of digital data. The research aims to analyze the fashion industry as a data-driven enterprise in which the correlation of data characterized by greater infor-mation power and higher quality gives the chance to make a more informed deci-sion making that lead to und...

Promoting an open dialogue, a constant interdisciplinary collaboration with companies, between universities, about partnership or open innovation perspective, today is a challenge that still faces some resistance. Learning to deal with complexity, with the coexistence of different points of view, in collaboration to combined and re-combined know-ho...
Chapter
Clichés are useful for communication, in their intrinsic meaning of visual shortcut. A shortcut that immediately allows to associate areas and concepts to conventional elements. In this sense, a designer is able to recognize a cliché starting from the repetition of certain elements and visual cues, now emptied of their original meaning. In the eyes...

Interest in offering Entrepreneurship Education (EE) to all kinds of university students is increasing. Therefore, universities are increasing the number of entrepreneurship courses intended for students from different fields of study and with different education levels. Through a single case study of the Contamination Lab of Turin (CLabTo), we sug...
Conference Paper
Nowadays, the role played by the fashion industry in contributing to the degradation of natural systems is increasingly acknowledged. Acting in terms of information flow from a systemic perspective does not represent a parametric adjustment, nor a reinforcement or a weakening of an existing cycle. It is the generation of a new sequence, that of inf...
Chapter
Everyday life is characterized by the interaction with an ever-increasing flow of digital data; the exponential diffusion of even more miniaturized and inexpensive sensors and the ease of connection to the Internet produce a vast amount of data, originating what is called “datization” of reality. Data belong to different typologies, but a great dea...

When we say to someone “Don’t act like a girl!”, we are saying more than a simple sentence. We are moving in the field of representation and self-perception. What are we saying about men?
Chapter
The research refers to two different initial topics of interest. On the one hand the large-scale diffusion of tracking devices and the growing interest to-wards the movement for the personal quantification, led us to the hypothesis that devices could autonomously analyze not only physical field related data, but also those related to emotions. On t...

Large mobile operators have to quickly react to mobile network failures to ensure service continuity and this task is a complex one, due to the continuous and very fast evolution of mobile networks: from 2G to 3G and onto LTE, each significant milestone in the mobile technology has increased the complexity of networks and services management. Failu...

The complex systems defined as 'sociotechnical systems' are made of software, hardware and people, somehow linked to the policy and a large number of stakeholders. They show complex dependencies and functional-based constraints. Over the last decades, the need to cope with the complexity took different forms, evolving in research activities and new...
Conference Paper
Children with Autism and Asperger Syndrome, though they are very different according to the broad spectrum of the criteria used for diagnosis, can be greatly supported by the use of new digital technologies in their daily lives, at school, at home, with their families. The paper shows the design approach to an interactive application for high-funct...
Chapter
The awareness of the fundamental role of innovation in the challenges of global and national society is well known and has been widely discussed. What is less obvious today is which innovation strategy has to be adopted to develop and drive the project onto this path. That is why researchers are looking for, studying and experimenting different typ...

After a deep recession in 2009, home appliance manufacturing has evolved quickly, increasing sales and forecasting of a huge spread of Internet of Things connected products. Despite the potential of the IoT as a future scenario for the development of major home appliances, data collected on actual purchases seem to contradict the trend. Manufacture...
