Solution 

1. We connected the client with a University College London (UK) Postdoc, specialising in LCA, and with industry consulting  experience in product and packaging design. 


2. We agreed to a weekly retainer with the client, signing the academic on for 2-6 hours of consulting work per week.

 The academic worked flexibly around the team’s requirements, producing deep research and 1-to-1 video consultations. 


Outcomes

The academic has worked with the client on three projects over two months, and continues to work with the client on an ongoing basis.
