Summer School: Circular Design and Management of Packaging, Construction, Mobility & Electronics
The summer school on Circular Design and Management of Packaging, Construction, Mobility & Electronics, which will be part of a newly developed Master's program "Resource and Waste Management for Circular Economy", will be offered by TU Wien. It takes place between September 18 - 29, 2023.
Circular economy (CE) is an innovative way of thinking, looking at production and consumption in a more sustainable, connected way. Instead of the traditional linear approach, this model seeks to minimize waste and keep resources in circulation. The CE model benefits people and the planet by creating an interdependent and responsible ecosystem for everyone.
The participants of this summer school will learn the manifold aspects (policy, legislation, technology, logistics, and economics) of Circular Economy. Besides the theoretical background, best practices of Circular Economy for different sectors of our economy (construction, mobility, electronics and packaging) are introduced and discussed. Moreover, the theoretical and practical oriented lectures are completed by technical visits of the industry.
The summer school takes place in small groups (15-25 participants) in order to enable an intensive elaboration of the topic and to cater to individual needs and create an atmosphere of personal exchange. The faculty of summer school is composed of renowned experts in Circular Economy based in industry, administration, and university.
The academic lecturers are renowned researchers and scholars who have made significant contributions to the field of circular economy through their publications and expertise. In addition, industry professionals have been selected who have successfully implemented circular economy practices in their respective sectors. Their practical experience and first-hand knowledge of the challenges and opportunities in these fields will enrich the learning experience and provide valuable industry insights.
