Abstract [en]

Purpose – This paper aims to investigate the intermediary role of universities in spreading design for

sustainability into industry.

Design/methodology/approach – Three case studies were undertaken on Delft University of Technology, Design for Sustainability Program from The Netherlands; a center on sustainable consumption and production; and Prof. Göksel Demirer from Middle East Technical University, Environmental Engineering Department from Turkey.

Findings – The process and evolution of the intermediary roles of the cases are explained. Three types of structures, through which universities undertake intermediary role, are investigated via the cases studies, a program, a center and an individual scientist.

Originality/value – This study is a first attempt to investigate the intermediary role of universities in the design for sustainability field.
