The programme consists of two separate courses: a four-week online part and a two-week in-residence part, that will take place from 29 June-10 July 2015, being organized together with the Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary. Participation in Module 1 (on-line self-learning module) and in the on-line discussions will be a precondition for attending in-residence Module 2.
Now running for its fourth consecutive year and with some 400 alunmi from countries all around the world, the Green Industry summer course provides participants with the opportunity to put the concept of “Green Industry” into practice and help improve industry’s environmental performance. Participants will:

- examine institutional platforms for the promotion and dissemination of resource efficient and cleaner production methods and economically viable, socially equitable and environmentally sustainable technologies;
- develop strategies for a Green Industry in line with socio-economic and environmental goals and targets.
- PhD students focused on technical and/or policy aspects of green industry.
- Emerging, second-in-line young leaders in the public or private sector responsible for managing policy or operations related to Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP).
- Members of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), involved in environmental advocacy and staff from industry, support institutions responsible for giving advice/counsel to Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) on RECP methodologies, environmental management systems (EMS), low carbon measures, eco-design, etc.
All the participants will be expected to arrive with an understanding of global and national framework conditions for green industrial development, as well as be fluent in written and spoken English.
