Acquire an understanding of the full raw materials value chain, and a mind-set for innovation & entrepreneurship focusing on sustainability.

Master’s Programme in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability, AMIS, will tackle the theme substitution of critical or toxic materials in products and for optimised performance. It will also cover material chain optimisation for end-of-life products, and product and services design for the circular economy — all of which are central themes of the EIT Raw Materials. The primary focus of the adaptation is on metal and mineral raw materials. Bio-base and polymer materials are covered in view of their substitution potential and other materials in the context of multi-material product recycling. In addition, the AMIS programme includes a solid package of courses and project work in innovation and entrepreneurship.

The mobility of the students is an integrated part of the programme and during the two-year programme, the students will study at two of the consortium partner universities. Upon completion of the programme, students will receive a double degree. The language of instruction is English.

The AMIS programme will boost young professionals to become change agents with an entrepreneurship mindset able to safeguard the sustainability of EIT Raw Materials throughout the industrial and research landscape.
