Project Coordinator with the Centre for Sustainable Design.

The Centre for Sustainable Design facilitates discussion and research on eco-design and broader sustainability considerations in product and service development. This is achieved through training, workshops, conferences, research, consultancy, publications, and internet resources. The Centre is an internationally recognised centre of excellence involved in various major EU and other projects.
With Prof Martin Charter, Director, the Centre is involved in various major EU and other projects, notably in the fields of construction and electronics.

Since 2003 Tim researched Eco-Product Innovation & Clean Manufacturing Technologies at Warwick Manufacturing Group; developing supporting methods & tools enabling engineering SMEs to justify innovative steps and to make valuable and potentially radical changes in environmental performance. This research was presented at the 13th CIRP Conference on Life Cycle Engineering, the 2nd International Conference on Eco-Efficiency for Sustainability, and the 13th International Conference of The Greening of Industry Network, Cardiff.
Prior to this, Tim worked for 15 years in automotive product development with GKN and Ricardo managing both detail design and client project delivery to cost, quality and performance targets; recently as a Senior Design Engineer specifying components to comply with End-of-Life Vehicles legislation.
In parallel he studied innovation and environmental improvements in various enterprises through an Advanced Diploma in Environmental Decision Making, complementing a Mechanical Engineering MEng degree and industrial management training.
