As part of a three-day retreat organized by the FINEST Research School, the doctoral students of the FINEST project were guests in Torgau. The international team’s research projects are dedicated to the recycling of dusty industrial waste, including microplastics, mineral additives and metal-containing dusts. The program included two industry excursions to AVANCIS GmbH and Saint-Gobain Glass Deutschland GmbH, workshops on career development and on transfer and innovation.
The retreat was therefore a valuable experience for the doctoral students of the FINEST project, as they not only deepened their own fields of research, but also gained insights into the needs of relevant industrial companies. This strengthens their professional skills as well as their understanding of current developments in the field of the circulareconomy.
