PhD summer school on Sustainable Production Systems

Date: 29 August 2016 - 09 September 2016
Location: Gothenburg, Sweden

Zero carbon value chains and zero waste systems based on the circular economy and the bio-economy are the future foundation of Europe’s industry. This PhD summer school aims to educate change agents ready to accelerate the transition to economically viable circular models, decoupling economic growth from unsustainable resource use and GHG emissions to create a zero carbon economy. We will support, train and coach PhD students with different scientific specialisations to transfer their research knowledge into smart sustainable solutions, and work with real life cases provided by Stena Recycling International AB, the West Sweden Chemical and Material Cluster in Stenungsund and the City of Gothenburg as our point of departure.


During the summer school 3 companies / organizations will present core challenges related to the transition into sustainable production systems. You will have exclusive access to these international corporations and the city, and work with each of them and their challenges – a valuable networking opportunity for your individual career development. It will allow you to link your theoretical knowledge with real-life challenges and it is up to you to come up with creative solutions for the issues of our times!
