Kick-off SINReM 2018-2019
On September 18 the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Managment (SINReM) started the new academic year with a kick-off event in the iGhent Tower. Our academic and industry partners, EIT Raw Materials and students were introduced to the SINReM programme. Speakers as Wouter Ghyoot (Group Director Sustainable Value Chain at Umicore), Jeroen Spooren (researcher in the group Waste Recycling Technologies, VITO) and Wesley Crock, (Head of the EIT Raw Materials Academy) gave insights and motivated the SINReM programme. Afterwards the 23 students from countries such as Australia, Namibia, The Philippines, Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, Nigeria, Egypt, Mexico and Ecuador had the opportunity to network with the partners. All the attendees enjoyed the walking dinner as a perfect ending of the evening.
