Manufacturers, Product Development Teams: How did knowledge of material health information help you develop a more optimized-for-health product?  How have you innovated in your use of materials to improve the material health of your products?  We are looking for stories of leading-edge innovation in product design, green chemistry, methodologies and supply chain tools that are now in use.

Session 3 – Leading Edge of Practice Case Studies: Project Design Team Innovation

Architects, Designers, Building Design Teams:  What did your innovation make possible?  How did you utilize material health information in a more impactful way?  We are looking for stories of leading-edge innovation in project design, methodologies and tools that have been developed and are now in use.

Results from the practice of material health by Sessions 2 and 3 will feature leading edge stories from product manufacturers and building design teams. Each presentation selected will demonstrate performance and results at the “leading edge” of actual practice – based on actual projects and product accomplishments. Presenters may be individuals or project teams. Each presentation will be 15 minutes in length.
