The beginning of the holidays was a time of hard work for some students and doctoral students. Congratulations to the international group of students who used this time to participate in the summer school classes organized on July 5-12, 2022 by the AGH UST Faculty of Management entitled: „Vacation learning at AGH for Sustainable Industry 4.0 Education. Business strategies in circular economy (GOZ)”.
The classes were conducted by professors and lecturers from the AGH UST Faculty of Management, and other academic centres, representatives of the MASPEX group and the EIT Food organization (European Institute of Innovation and Technology). This unique set of scientists and practitioners from different dimensions has allowed students to look at the challenges of the circular economy from different points of view.
The high level of discussion and exchange of information was also the result of the fact that enthusiasts of this subject applied to participate in the classes. From the beginning, they presented a high level of knowledge and willingly shared it with other participants. Thanks to the online formula, the School was intercontinental, with representatives of 15 countries participating.
The next editions are ahead of us. We invite more enthusiasts of this subject to take part in them.
The offer is dedicated to international students, classes are conducted in English and have an online form. Thanks to NAWA funding, the program is free of charge for students.
