e-CirP - Embedding circular economy into product design and optimization - European consortium to develop new Master education

The e-CirP project initiates a platform of education modules to bring together actors within European countries to accelerate the transformation through Master of Science education.

It provides an interactive education, networking and knowledge-sharing opportunity for students in the fields of environmental, mechanical, chemical, energy, civil and industrial engineering, sustainability assessment and product design. In addition, it provides an opportunity for companies to have their actual and topical challenges related to, for example, product design, life-cycle sustainability or circularity, to be examined by postgraduate students under the guidance of subject experts.

The project is funded by EIT Raw Materials. Partners of the project are:

Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland (Lead Partner)

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V. (Fraunhofer), Germany

Outotec Oy, Finland

Technical University of Denmark, Denmark

Technische Universiteit Delft (Delft University of Technology), Netherlands
