International Summer School on “Life Cycle Approaches to Sustainable Regional Development”

The training will take place in Bordeaux, France, on the 28 – 30 August 2015, prior to the celebration of the LCM Conference. The objective of this 4th edition Summer School is 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 will allow 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 is 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 take place in the same neighbourhood, where participants are accommodated. This choice, together with the organisation of a social event and the sharing of common spaces facilitate the team building and the learning processes.
