When the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also noted that raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage. The EMerald master’s programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mind-set and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources on a circle that continues by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of urban mines (circular economy). The EMerald programme is supported by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union.
