CLOsing the loop:
building Circular sKillS
on the entire value chain
An initiative to promote a more rational use of resources
both in terms of raw materials as well as of energy
• to establish innovative high educational initiatives for people
performing activities in the field of circular economy
• to connect the PhD students with the companies and their representatives
• to enable the participants of the Circular Summer School
establishing new knowledge, proficiencies and skills
The project CLOCKS is initiated as a necessary response to the worldly challenges provoked by resource depletion, pollution and climate changes.
In order to face these problems in the most appropriate way, a necessary shift from the linear to circular economy has to be performed.
This requires a holistic perspective, intersectional approach and interdisciplinarity of knowledge.
Following this aims a synergic knowledge-triangle integration (connecting industry, research/ innovation and education) is being established.
