The first orientation week of the Erasmus Mundus "International Joint Master's Programme on Circular Economy" (CIRCLE) will take place from 4 to 9 August 2019 on Hönö (Gothenburg area, Sweden). This kick-off event of CIRCLE's first generation will bring together the 16 Erasmus Mundus scholarship holders, 2 self-payer students and the academic coordinators of all participating universities (University of Graz, Chalmers University of Technology, Leiden University/Delft University of Technology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Curtin University, Tsinghua University, and Waseda University) for a first get together.
During the orientation week students will be offered introduction courses into circular economy and urban mining. Furthermore, in the frame of the organized case study work they will carry out their first research activities together with their fellow students. In addition, information sessions on the participating universities as well as the administrative procedures at the respective European universities such as scholarship payments, enrolments, study progress, will be organized.
After the orientation week, students will travel to their host university 1 where they will spend their first year of studies in the International Joint Master's Programme on Circular Economy (CIRCLE).
The CIRCLE consortium is very much looking forward to welcoming its first generation at Hönö.
