About the Summer School
The objective of the Summer School was to provide advanced training to undergraduate students, doctoral, post-doctoral students and young professionals, including researchers of less than 30 years, in the specialised field of life cycle approaches, with the purpose to help them to foster sustainable regional development. In this way the school allowed the students to acquire transversal skills in the area of sustainable chemistry and engineering that are highly appreciated by research institutions and industrial employers.
The school was organised with lectures by experts, interactive focus groups, workshops and a short course in order to provide up-to-date knowledge and to stimulate the sharing of own ideas among participants. School activities took place in the same neighbourhood, where participants were accommodated. This choice, together with the organisation of a social event and the sharing of common spaces facilitated the team building and the learning processes.
