Climate-KIC Summer School "Sustainable Production Systems: Shaping cross-company innovation"

Location: Gothenburg and Frankfurt

PhD Summer School on circular business models in the chemical industry

Turn your research into practice and create climate and business impact with our PhD Summer School on Sustainable Production Systems. The industrial sector uses a large part of raw materials and more than half of the global energy consumption. Where better than here could innovations lead to meaningful transitions? Apply the concepts of closed-loop value chains and circular economy to innovation processes for one of the major manufacturing industries in Europe: the chemical industry which will serve as a case study for the two-week programme. Engage with stakeholders, discuss with experts, work in interdisciplinary teams and develop innovative solutions for the real-life challenges of chemical companies and clusters.
