Fulbright Program collaborative plan on Sustainable Development for AY 2013-2017

International Collaboration Department

 Area of the sustainable development educational program collaboration:

"Materials Science for Sustainable Development"

 "Novel materials solutions shall make a difference in coping with climate change, tightening energy supply, ageing society, public health, security and the demand of sustainability" (cf. Lund Declaration, 2009).

In this context,  materials technology, together with biotechnology and information technology, is considered as one of the mega-technologies that shall have the most pronounced impact on industrial development and the quality of life in the near future. Advanced materials can be held as an enabling technology for innovations in a number of sectors, including the energy, automotive, aerospace, electronics and machinery industries.
