CAPTURE professors are involved as programme coordinators, lecturers and thesis supervisors in a wide range of Dutch- and English-taught Bachelor and Master programmes, integrating resource recovery technologies into the training. These include the Master of Science in Bioscience Engineering: Chemistry and Bioprocess Technology (IMCHEM), Master of Science in Bioscience Engineering: Environmental Technology (IMMITE), the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM), the International Master of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering (IMETE), the Master of Science in Environmental Sanitation (ENVISAN) and the environmental technology programmes taught at Ghent University Global Campus in Incheon, South Korea, among others. Most of these programmes combine excellent science education with a strong focus on the development of complementary skills, e.g. entrepreneurship skills, and collaboration with the non-academic sector.


SINReM, the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management, is a programme offered jointly by Ghent University, Uppsala University and TU Bergakademie Freiberg – three institutions known for their excellence and expertise in the field of natural resource management – in collaboration with a range of non-academic partners. It gives students a broad view on the entire value chain in its different aspects. They learn about the different (technological) options for optimizing flows of natural resources in the different parts of the chain, ranging from resource exploration over sustainable materials use and use of resources in production processes to recovery/recycling of resources from end-of-life products. SINReM graduates have an entrepreneurial mind-set, a multidisciplinary view and creative innovative problem-based technology development skills. They are qualified for a professional career in the private (supporting companies in making processes, products and services more sustainable), research (applied research at universities, research institutes or companies) or public sector (consulting in local, regional and (inter)national administrations, defining and implementing sustainable development policies). Moreover, SINReM promotes networking and exchange of knowledge and experience between different nationalities, between academic and non-academic partner and between scholars and students from European and non-European countries which are rich in natural resources and/or can be considered as rapidly growing markets for sustainable products, processes and services.


SINReM is supported by the EU-funded international exchange programme Erasmus+ and EIT Raw Materials, a pan-European network of more than 100 leading businesses, universities and research institutes boosting competitiveness, growth and attractiveness of the European raw materials sector via radical innovation and entrepreneurship. For its strong focus on the development of entrepreneurship skills and close collaboration with the non-academic sector, SINReM has received the EIT quality label from the European Institute of Innovation & Technology. Each year SINReM can grant over 30 Erasmus+ and EIT scholarships to excellent, strongly motivated students.
