In addition to Bruce's ideas I come up with the following suggestions:
- would it be valuable to write an paper on the upscaling of LCA results? e.g. do's/don'ts when extrapolating from function unit to macro-level.
- could we make a evaluation on the use and effect of LCA results: survey amongst people that had to make a decision and had LCA results as supporting info? How often the LCA really influenced the decision/policy, and in which direction? This could be based on interviews (skype) with some decisionmakers around the globe. Small, just te get some ideas. Or a bigger survey.
- I like the wicked problem discussion. I think the contribution of LCA's to 'solving' wicked problem soley depends on how you present the results. We could think on how to present our LCA results in order to serve dealing with wicked problems and compare this with how we would present LCA results on tame problems.
Let the brainstorm continue ;-)
