How much carbon is emitted to produce your t-shirt, meal or phone? The amount will depend on production and consumption choices. By making the right choices, industry and society in general can reduce the emission of greenhouse gases and contribute to making the EU Green Deal come true to preserve our planet for future generations.
In this 2024 edition of the international summer school CEAD, we focus on low-carbon technologies and processes in various fields of research and industry. Scientists and engineers play a key role in this shift. With their knowledge and skills, these problem-solvers can assess and optimize the entire life cycle of products, services, and processes with innovative solutions with low carbon impact. We also outline the broader social and economic context of such a technological shift. How to adapt our behavior? What about the social and economic implications?
Lectures, interactive workshops, and lab activities given by international experts in several inspiring research locations will boost your knowledge and know-how about the topic. International and interdisciplinary teamwork enhances your communication skills and makes you aware of the global importance of circular engineering. Company visits show how circular solutions are already being embraced today.
The summer school will take place from Sunday 21 (evening) to Friday 26 April 2024, on campus at Hasselt University (Belgium), followed by a virtual part to be completed at the latest 5 May 2024. The language of instruction is English.
