Postgraduate School of Industrial Ecology II
Our summer school offers a series of PhD courses in industrial ecology. The courses in 2010 address sustainable consumption (EP8120) and life-cycle assessment/environmental systems analysis (EP8108). The school builds on the successfully completed “Postgraduate School of Industrial Ecology”, an EU Marie Curie series of research training courses. It leverages NTNU’s leading position in industrial ecology, including a comparatively large number of own PhD students and a long focus in PhD education in the field.
The summer school targets Ph.D. candidates, young researchers and faculty members from throughout Europe who want to address sustainable production and consumption in their research. The series teaches participants cutting-edge research methods in Industrial Ecology and related disciplines. It aims to provide skills and knowledge to implement research programs in sustainable production and consumption.
The courses are registered as PhD courses at NTNU and credited and graded according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) with 7,5 ECTS credits each. Each course consists of 2 weeks of self-study and 2 weeks of intensive training sessions in Trondheim. Fulfillment of each course requires the completion of an exam and submission of a research paper.
The application deadline is 7 April 2010.
