Summer School TERRA


A summer school will be established to function as a joint module of the three partner universities and will be open to external participants. The content will focus on the sustainable and responsible sourcing of mineral raw materials. The first module of the summer school will start in August 2023 at Aalto University.

So far, a total of four modules is planned:

  1. Sustainable rock drilling and blasting technique
  2. Remote rock mass characterization
  3. Mining and energy
  4. Occupational and process safety in mining
