Division: Division of Biogenic Raw Materials
TranDOCSUM project envisages the development of a training program to support entrepreneurship in the raw materials sector. As part of the project, a summer school (in English) for PhD students will be organized, which will deal with the possibility of recovering biogenic raw materials (phosphorus, nitrogen) from waste generated in sewage treatment plants, such as sewage, sewage sludge and ash from the incineration of sewage sludge. The project is a continuation of training programs implemented in cooperation with Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) and Université de Liège. According to the assumed knowledge transfer, the organizers of the summer school are participants of the ‘train the trainers event’ (MEERI PAS, AGH, RISE IVF AB) who have been trained and prepared to organize a summer school in RIS countries.
Winter School description
The Winter School offers the PhD Students and Young Researchers an unique opportunity to acquaint to various elements of the circular economy (CE) implementation in the raw materials sector.
The main theme of the Winter School is the transformation towards the CE with the focus on the possibility of recovering the raw materials from waste generated in municipal waste processing plants, as well as building industrial symbiosis in the region and creating a positive image of the company among various stakeholder groups.
All participants will receive a certificate confirming the acquisition of key skills in the area of innovative and entrepreneurial activities in the raw materials sector.
