Programme 2019

Materials Science

Raw materials and materials science are critical in the transition towards green energy technologies, environmentally friendly manufacturing and securing sustainable growth for the future.

It's therefore crucial to understand the challenges modern-day industry and consumers are facing for materials science to contribute to the transformation towards more sustainable processes and material choices. During this summer school, participants will be introduced to these challenges and will gain insight into what are the limiting factors for deploying these novel technologies into society.

Innovation & Entrepreneurship

A strong theoretical knowledge is required to be able to address these challenges, however, that is not enough to make a real impact and create innovative solutions.

During this summer school participants will therefore work in multidisciplinary teams, combining knowledge and skills from multiple scientific disciplines, while developing their entrepreneurial skills. You will learn how to create your own innovative business project in materials science by developing a solution concept to some of the current challenges in the field of sustainable materials.
