Since 2008, the ADEME, the Conseil Régional Nord - Pas de Calais, the Direccte, the CRCI, the ITC Grand Lille and [avniR] are mobilized to promote eco-design and develop the regional supply of ecological products and services designed in the Nord - Pas de Calais. All these partners form the regional eco-design collective .
In 2009, this mobilization took form notably through the implementation of two pilot projects. A first project initiated by the ITC Grand Lille has raised awareness among companies in its territory to the challenges of eco-design and supports five companies in the eco-design of a product.
The second project aims to develop training provision in higher education. The Institute for Sustainable and Responsible Development (IDDR - http://iddr.icl-lille.fr/) coordinates for the eight institutions of the Catholic University of Lille the implementation of training modules including supporting businesses as part of project tutorials. In 2009, 120 students were trained in eco -design and 8 companies are accompanied by student groups in the environmental improvement of their products.
The offer of business support in eco -design is now well structured and tailored to the different needs of businesses in the region. In this context, the regional eco-design collective has made a second call for nominations in 2010.
