UKRI Interdisciplinary Centre for Circular Chemical Economy Summer School 2023

UKRI Interdisciplinary Centre for Circular Chemical Economy Summer School 2023

Join us for a pragmatic in-person Summer School event, hosted by the UKRI National Interdisciplinary Centre for the Circular Chemical Economy (CircularChem) and Newcastle University.

The Catalyst – an impressive, award-winning building in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne – will open its doors this September to everyone interested in the circular chemical economy.

The Summer School will be a great opportunity to:

  • Expand your knowledge of the circular chemical economy, and hear a range of talks from leading experts, researchers and industry representatives;
  • Gain new skills from a full day of interactive and practical-focused learning, with workshops and demonstrations that will equip attendees with knowledge and tools around Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), mass balance approach, and blockchain analysis.
  • Network with other academic researchers, students and industry partners involved in the circular chemical economy.

Among the provisional line-up of speakers are representatives from Decerna, Shell, Britvic, WRAP and Nepic. A full agenda and confirmed speakers for the event will be available soon.

At the end of the final day, there will be an additional workshop for Early Career Researchers to provide training and advice on grant proposal and CV writing, courtesy of Newcastle University.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided, and there will be a poster competition (with prizes) for anyone who wishes to enter.

Attendees can also opt to join informal social activities (including pizza and crazy golf) and/or attend a formal dinner. Places for these activities are limited.
