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.
Please share this news with your friends international students and PhD students!

More information on the project: AGH 4.0 – Vacation learning at AGH

Welcome international undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students who wish to gain or expand their knowledge about the implementation of the circular economy business model and acquire new skills and competencies.
The main objective of the course is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge for the transition from a linear to a circular economy (CE) model.
Lectures about the CE will be focused both on increasing theoretical knowledge i.e. EU and global policy, megatrends, building strategies, using models supporting CE, CE promotions and searching for win-win solutions, and as well as practical applications in enterprises (small, medium and large). The course will be taught by qualified academic staff and by experts, specialists and practitioners in the field of the circular economy. The course will be conducted online with the a possibility of synchronous interaction between participants (chat during the presentations and lectures, and a possibility of discussions during exercises and workshops).
Each participant will receive a certificate confirming completion of intensive training in the field of the closed economy and will obtain 3 ECTS credits.
Each school will begin with a pre-test and end with a post-test to assess the quality of education.
