Summer school “PhD CATAPULT District regeneration – decarbonising supply chains”


The researcher’s summer school "PhD CATAPULT District regeneration - decarbonising supply chains”, under the Climate-KIC programme, begun on July 7. It will take place between 7-19 July 2019, in Bologna in the first week, and at NOVA FCT in the second and last week (15-19 July).

During these two weeks, the 20 participants, divided by five teams, will develop concrete proposals for the case studies (one in Bologna and the other in Almada), focusing both on the following question: How can cities combine green areas and urban regeneration actions with the decarbonisation of their supply chains?
Participants will work with the two municipalities and companies in the area of supply chains and will have direct contact with local agents in each city. On Friday, July 19 between 14h00 and 18h00, the teams will make 15 minutes presentation of their solutions.
There were 100 candidates from 32 different countries for the 20 vacancies that were completed by participants from 14 nationalities including 7 EU countries, Brazil, India, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, USA and Venezuela. The participants have a very robust and varied profile in the areas of architecture and urban planning, supply chains and energy planning.
This event is organized by CENSE / Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering and the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering from NOVA FCT, besides the Università di Bologna.
