ShiftTanks

ShiftTanks is an initiative founded by Engineers for a Sustainable Future (ESF) and RIC Leoben and provides a platform for motivated students to voluntarily use their expertise in order to work on solutions for challenges of the 21th century. These challenges appear in industry, science and society and are structured in these five areas:

  • Sustainable Technologies in Developing Countries
  • Renewable Energy and Energy Storage
  • CO2-neutral Production and Recycling Processes, Carbon Capture
  • CO2-neutral Raw Material Production
  • Levels of Sustainable Action

Students at MUL are encouraged to use their knowledge and work on solutions during workshops, meetings and field work. In a subsequent step reports, publications, implementation, construction of prototypes are envisioned. The initiators support shiftTanks by providing input, networking, space and financial contribution.

ShiftTanks is a think tank, which thinks as well as acts and thus aims to solve problems and bring about societal change.

Think together – Move others – Shift the system!
