ELPID course in collaboration with Electrolux and Rold just started!

With the initial ELPID workshop, this-year edition of ELPID course officially started. Students are familiarised with the design task given by Rold and Electrolux, and provided with necessary instructions to start working and collaborating in the virtual environment!

Electrolux Open Innovation (https://open.electrolux.com/), Electrolux Global R&D Fabric Care and Dish Care and R-Lab (https://www.rold.com/research-innovation/r-lab/) propose two themes you will be asked to tackle during the project. After the first project review with the company you will be told which of your promising innovative ideas you should focus on for the rest of the project.

Design Project Themes:

Washing Machine: Ideation and development of an innovative solution for the recovery/reuse of water from the rinsing cycles (water to be reused within the washing machine as well as for other purposes).

Dishwasher: Ideation and development of an innovative solution for drying tableware at the end of the washing cycle (in order to avoid to heat up the washing chamber with hot water –70°C –to increase its heat capacity).

Thank you Electrolux and Rold for providing such exciting and motivating tasks!
