The Challenge

As global and EU populations increase along with well-being and welfare, consumption per capita is also increasing. In the EU especially, consumption has outpaced production, particularly with respect to the more complicated, resource-intensive technologies and products that have become part of daily life. As a result, the importance of recycling and the circular economy will continue to increase in order to diversify our sources of supply and meet our needs.

AMIS is a Master programme in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability. The primary objective of the programme is to provide students with an understanding of the full raw materials value chain and a mindset for innovation and entrepreneurship focusing on sustainability.
