EnAct-SDGs: Enhancing the skills of East and South East Europe (ESEE) Raw Materials students towards the achievement of SDGs

EnAct-SDGs Summer School is a three days hands-on webinar on Innovation & Entrepreneurship for the Raw Materials industry. The programme is driven by the sustainability development goals and circular economy principles. Students will tackle on challenges proposed by the Industry to generate new business ideas and improve existing solutions; they will acquire new skills, learn to use new tools and develop a new mindset that will help building up their careers as innovation professionals. The programme curriculum is provided by TU Freiberg, Montanuniversität Leoben, University of Trento and Hub Innovation Trentino, partners of EnAct-SDGs project. In this Pilot School students from TUKE, AGH and NTUA will participate as well as other students from the region.

Background

The School is part of the pilot activities of the EnAct-SDGs project, funded by EIT Raw Materials

The main goal of the EnAct-SDGs Project is to build a dynamic, self-sustained network between the Academia, Researchers, Industry and Professionals of the Raw Materials sector and develop an Action Plan that will act as a driver to:

  • modernize the Raw Materials University education practices
  • ensure the incorporation of the Sustainable Development principles in the educational programs of the ESEE Universities
  • strengthen the skills and increase the capacity of Raw Material University graduates and Raw Materials professionals

EnAct-SDGs partners include 3 ESEE Universities (NTUA, AGH and TUKE), 3 Knowledge provider Universities (TUBAF, MUL and Uni-Trento), 1 Research Organisation (HIT) one Industrial Partner (MYTILINEOS), and four RIS Task Partners (Employers’ Organization of Polish Copper – Poland,  National Technology Platform for Research, Development and Innovation of Raw Material – Slovakia, Panhellenic Association of Graduate Mining and Metallurgical Engineers – Greece and Greek Mining Enterprises Association – Greece), representing 6 countries across Europe.
