At the end of the course, students will be able to :
- identify the specificities of an urban industrial production in terms of supply chain, means of production and link with consumers;
- estimate the contribution that an urban factory could have for sustainability in a local context.
The course will answer the following questions based on case studies complemented by lectures:
- What are the main aspects (technical, regulatory, environmental and social) of an urban factory and what are the main differences with a conventional production far from the consumption places?
- What are the specific supply and production means of the urban factory?
- What is the link with consumers and the life cycle of products that are produced in an urban factory?
- What is important to consider to ensure that an urban factory is sustainable?
