• Welcome to the 27th CIRP Life Cycle Engineering Conference Site

    Advancing Life Cycle Engineering
    from technological eco-efficiency to technology that supports a world
    that meets the development goals and the absolute sustainability
  • The CIRP Life Cycle Engineering (LCE) conference is back to Grenoble (France) in 2020. To quote a well-known saying, the house is still burning and we continue to look in the other direction… except at the CIRP LCE Conferences! The LCE 2020 conference focuses on the role that engineering must play in the achievement of the sustainable future that people wish.
    We must shift the focus of life cycle engineering from eco-efficient technologies to technologies, organisations and behaviours that meet the 2030 development goals (United Nations) and the absolute sustainability. New techniques and concepts like circular economy and artificial intelligence have a great potential for sustainability but still need to prove their capacity to transform products, usages and industrial processes. A special attention is for educational issues.
    We invite all the contributions that address those challenges. We look forward to receiving many interesting papers and welcome participants from every community from all over the world to join us in Grenoble.

    Conference Chair
