Radboud Summer School

The energy-intensive industry is responsible for around a third of global greenhouse gas emissions and needs to be close to zero by 2050. In this globally recognised course co-hosted by our project partner Radboud University, experts will provide a robust, interdisciplinary perspective on industry decarbonisation.

This course will provide a robust and in-depth understanding of how the industry can be decarbonised, and what it will entail, from various disciplinary perspectives including transition studies, economics, engineering, chemistry, political science, and social psychology.

The Summer School will take place from 11-15 July 2022 and will consist of in-depth presentations by experts, and group projects in which participants will develop an interdisciplinary decarbonisation strategy and pathway for an industrial cluster, suggesting policies and technologies, and accounting for challenges, societal considerations, and economic realities.

On Wednesday the 13th of July from 9 – 10.30 am (CET), Dr Rosalie van Zelm from our project partner Radboud University will participate in the Summer School and give a lecture on “Life cycle assessment: CO2 reduction in industry, CCUS and CDR” during which she will outline how to environmentally evaluate the INITIATE technology.

By the end of the course, participants will be equipped with the necessary insight and expertise to understand the multi-disciplinary approach which is needed to effectively decarbonise industry.
