Course aim

TranDOCSUM project envisages the development of a training program to support entrepreneurship in the raw materials sector. As part of the project, a summer school (in English) for PhD students will be organized, which will deal with the possibility of recovering biogenic raw materials (phosphorus, nitrogen) from waste generated in sewage treatment plants, such as sewage, sewage sludge and ash from the incineration of sewage sludge. The project is a continuation of training programs implemented in cooperation with Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) and Université de Liège. According to the assumed knowledge transfer, the organizers of the summer school are participants of the ‘train the trainers event’ (MEERI PAS, AGH, RISE IVF AB) who have been trained and prepared to organize a summer school in RIS countries.

The project is financed by EIT Raw Materials, project no. 19091
