SINReM – Master in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management

EIT RawMaterials Academy - SINReM
Campus 2 years September 2018 Belgium Ghent

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, gain competence, expertise, and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials. [+]

The Challenge

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 decarbonizing 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 The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources.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, gain competence, expertise, and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials....

EMerald – Master in Georesources Engineering

EIT RawMaterials Academy EMerald
Campus 2 years September 2018 Belgium Liège

EMerald integrates knowledge of mineral/metal resources and modern engineering technologies to meet this challenge. This two-year Master programme draws from four top-level engineering schools with a long tradition in the fields of geology, geo-modeling and mineral processing. [+]

The Challenge

The future and sustainability of our societies are critically linked to the exploitation of primary raw materials. The need for innovation in this sector is considered as new deposits will be more and more difficult to process, due to their lower quality and the increasing regulations to minimize their impacts on the environment. Such innovations are only possible if a deep understanding of the geology is integrated throughout the whole mine lifecycle, from mining to site rehabilitation. Innovation requires a geometallurgical approach.

Geometallurgy aims at integrating geological characteristics into new resource-efficiency based models. It requires a deep understanding of geology and advanced mineral processing techniques, expertise in geo-modeling, knowledge of state-of-the-art monitoring tools, and an acute awareness of the environmental, economic and societal issues in mining....
