SusCritMat Summer School 2019









The SusCritMat summer school will take place in beautiful King’s College, Cambridge. Besides learning about different aspects of the sustainable management of critical raw materials, we will discuss didactic aspects and how to teach the modules in other curricula. Teaching material for further use is included.

Each of the three School days will have their own focus:

Day 1: Introduction to criticality (including criticality assessment, global resource supply chains, geopolitical factors, and economics of metals)
Day 2: Analysis of criticality (including material flows, scenario planning, and life cycle assessment)
Day 3: Solutions (including responsible sourcing, circularity indicators, circular product design, and good practice examples)



The school will provide the unique opportunity to learn and network with speakers of various backgrounds such as Raimund Bleischwitz from UCL, Dominique Guyonnet from BRGM, David PeckRuud Balkenende and Layla van Ellen from TU Delft, Patrick Wäger from Empa, James Goddin from Granta Design, Matthew Polaine from the British Antarctic Survey, and many others. Furthermore, teaching concepts and learning outcomes will be analysed and discussed.



The full fee is 500 EUR, the reduced fee for students and non-profit organisations is 350 EUR. This includes full programme, teaching material, course certificate, all meals, drinks and snacks and networking activities.
