RIC Leoben supports the first CirCOOL Summer School at Montanuniversität Leoben
CirCOOL, the new innovative international Summer School at Montanuniversitaet Leoben took place from 8th-18th July 2018. The team from RIC Leoben provided interesting input on two half days. Setting the scene for the coming days of circular economy learning the international students were given presentations on RIC Leoben’s core activities. Naturally, the focus was on EIT Raw Materials, EIT Climate KIC and the Sustainable Development Goals. Students were provided with interesting information and opportunities for their further studies and career. For example:
All presentations embraced the circular economy as core element and showed the CirCOOL student group different points of view that EIT Raw Materials, EIT Climate KIC and the Sustainable Development Goals can add to the circular economy. EIT RM moved resources and their availability into the focus while EIT Climate KIC highlights disruptive change in activities linked to massive greenhouse gas emissions. Lastly, many circular economy practices foster the implantation of the SDGs as well as working on the SDGs improves the move to a more circular economy. The contribution of RIC Leoben was rounded off by an interactive group work on the last day of CirCOOL.
