The StEP E-waste Summer School is a pioneering concept in the research and education on e-waste management, looking at the e-waste issue in its entirety, rather than through the lens of a specific academic discipline.
The vision is to provide the foremost platform to young scientists involved in e-waste related research to share their knowledge, interact with experts and develop collaborative partnerships fostering high quality cutting edge scientific research on all areas related to e-waste - from policy to technology to economics to social aspects.
The Summer School offer participants a diverse curriculum in an innovative framework supported by various teaching and learning methodologies including lectures, workshops, participant presentations, group projects and study tours with an international interdisciplinary faculty and experienced facilitators.
The Summer School is open to post-docs, doctoral students and early career researchers from social and physical sciences investigating the political, social, economic, environmental, health or technological aspects of e-waste. Researchers must be associated to a university or scientific institution and possess a good knowledge of English.
The fee for the Summer School is €400 per participant. This includes the tuition, cost of accommodation and meals for the duration of the entire E-waste Academy as well as costs related to study tours.
A limited number of travel grants are available to students who have been selected, based on merit and need.
