SINReM – International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management

EIT RawMaterials Academy - SINReM
Campus 2 years Belgium Ghent

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials is vital for a decarbonising society, renewable energy infrastructure, electric mobility but also consumer products and electronics. The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources. In order to deal with this challenge, three leading European universities cooperated to develop a new Erasmus+ Master programme – the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM). SINReM was created to educate a new generation of professionals who can engineer technology to reinvent materials science, and gain competence, expertise and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials.

The Challenge

Materials provide the foundation of the modern global economy. They are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonising society as they enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility and resource efficiency, among others. Nevertheless, many materials are becoming critical.

Therefore, we need to develop robust solutions and game-changing technologies that allow for a sustainable stream of materials.
