Overview

Students graduating from the Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM) programme at EIT RawMaterials Academy are also awarded the EIT Label Certificate, demonstrating their innovation and entrepreneurship knowledge. SINReM is part of the International Training Centre of the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering of Ghent University and the EIT RawMaterials Academy.

During the first semester at Ghent University, students are taken through the value chain of raw materials, and are introduced to the sustainability challenges of the circular economy. Students learn to develop novel technologies to recover and extract precious metals and raw materials from waste streams and learn to create new technologies to mine materials in a sustainable way. Students take a 2-weeks course at TU Freiberg in September.

From global challenges to economic opportunities

The limited availability of raw materials, together with worldwide phenomena such as base metal and high-tech metal supply risks, fossil fuel depletion and climate change urges us to radically adapt to a sustainable management of natural resources. 

This challenge can be transformed into an economic opportunity. 

The re-invigoration of the mining industry in a sustainable way and the stimulation of the recycling industry are good examples of how the move to sustainable management are providing such opportunities.
