The European Interreg project Wanderful.stream (2020-2023) focuses on the valorization of waste streams from SME’s. In this project, seven partners from the MeuseRhine Euroregion have pooled their nowledge,
strengths and resources to jointly support small and medium-sized enterprises in their transition to a circular economy.
Wanderful.stream offers companies free guidance and support in valorizing waste valorization and residue streams and initiates and facilitates the co-creation ofcircular prototypes together with technologists, designers and business developers in innovation tracks.
Along with working with professional experts, the project included students from STEAM disciplines (that
refers to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). The students contributed to identifying waste valorization during bootcamps that were organized throughout all partner regions.
A bootcamp consists of three working days during which companies, designers and students from various backgrounds work in teams on concrete challenges. The aim of the bootcamps is to provide early waste valorization concepts that could then be developed within the framework of Wanderful.stream innovation tracks.
This report contains summary information on the design thinking methods and tools used during the bootcamp by the students. The full report is available here
