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 The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources.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.
