Aesthetics is identified as one of the major points in designing new products, in particular if these products are made of recycled materials. One such case are products, incorporating alkali activated material, developed in the project InnoWEE. All products are visible and their aesthetic quality is very important. Please have a look at the http://innowee.eu/products/ to find more about the products.

This activity is part of the European project InnoWEE (http://innowee.eu/).

The objective of this questionnaire is to receive the feedback on the Aesthetics, identified as one of the major points in designing new products, in particular if these products are made of Recycled materials.

We invite you to complete the following questionnaire.

Thank you,
