The Resources Innovation Center Leoben at Montanuniversität Leoben is home to the university’s international partnerships in the areas of sustainable science, education and industrialization. Our vision is to make a climate friendly, sustainable future in the raw materials sector.

Journey 2020



The Journey is a EIT Climate KIC summer school programme for Master/PhD students and young professionals and is held in through July, August and September. It focuses on climate action, innovation, systems transformation, and community building. Due to current circumstances, the Journey will go online! We are preparing an extraordinary experience for the participants, unique for its complexity and multiple level of climate actions conserved even in a digital format! We are excited to see the results of this innovative format and we are equally looking forward to the challenge of a digital Journey. Leoben will “host” the first two weeks for 40 of the 400 young professionals that are participating in the Journey all over the world.

The project consortium of “ENhancing the skills for theAChievemenT of SDGs”, EnAct-SDGs, will cooperate in orderto develop an Action Plan that will act as a driver to modernizethe RM education practices to ensure the incorporationof the Sustainable Development principles in the educationalprogrammes of the ESEE Universities, strengthen the skillsand increase the capacity of University graduates and RMprofessionals.During the project a number of actions will take place andmethodological tools will be adopted so as: (a) to build adynamic self-sustained network between the Industry, Academia,Researchers and Professionals of the RM sector;(b) to initially assess the existing Educational programmesof the Beneficiary Universities; (c) to take into account theneeds and views of the stakeholders from the RM network,Policy makers and NGOs; (d) to identify the areas that needimprovement; (e) propose a road map for the modernizationof the educational programs of the Beneficiary Universitiesthat could be then transferred as a Best practice to other Universitiesof the ESEE Region; (f) to organize pilot activities forthe implementation of the new proposals. The EnAct-SDGs project will cooperate with the existing anddeveloping ecosystems of different EIT RM Innovation (RCLeoben and RC Freiberg) and RIS (RCGREECE and RCKOSICE)HUBs represented by the Consortium. The RM industry hasalready expressed their interest in the project implementationthrough their Letter of Intent.
