This programme deals with the multifaceted challenge of developing products, services and technical systems that contribute to increased resource-effectiveness and sustainability.

It is well-known that economic development and human welfare depend on the availability of raw materials and energy. However, the exploitation of such natural resources has many environmental implications such as climate change, resource scarcity and the uncontrolled dispersal of hazardous substances. In times of global environmental problems and concerns about the long-term availability of natural resources such as metals and minerals, incentives for using materials and energy in more intelligent and efficient ways are increasing among governments, companies and other organisations....

MSc Science for Sustainable Development is a two-year, full-time study programme that provides a strong basis for a career related to sustainable development and environm ... [+]

The programme focuses on critical analysis of environmental challenges and applying science to solve real‑world problems. It consists of core and specialisation courses followed by thesis work. Upon completion of the programme, students acquire a Master’s degree in Science with a major in Environmental Science.

Core courses

In the core courses, students gain knowledge of theories, approaches, techniques, and methods from various scientific disciplines (such as critical analysis of sustainability perspectives, commodity chain analysis, indicators, resource management, and GIS). They also learn to develop general analytical skills that will enable them to interpret, design, communicate, and implement sustainability and environmental issues. They develop problem-solving abilities and adaptability skills, which will be indispensable to professional success.... [-]

In this programme, you will be provided with the theory, concepts and methods to analyse and better understand the economics, roots and drivers of growth and innovation. The unique focus on spatial dynamics enables you to gain insights on how the areas of development and innovation interplay, evolve and shape the economy in different regions and periods of time.

Innovation is fundamental in the process of economic, social and environmentally sustainable development. Grand challenges such as those we are currently facing; climate change, food security and poverty alleviation, require new technical solutions, new social configurations, new economic models and eventually, new socio-economic and technical transformations. Innovation is also about the diffusion and incremental changes that yield economic, social and environmental benefits for society. In this programme, you will learn the dynamics of both macro and microeconomics of innovation.... [-]

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 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....
