Training within REFINE is divided into three thematic modules. These are the scientific & technological, the industrial and the complementary modules, which clearly articulates the individual research projects within the four different scientific and technological work packages.
The training programme thereby addresses the triple bottom line of sustainable production targeting economic, societal as well as scientific angles. Additionally, the non-scientific training targeted to the needs of the polymer manufacturers and different industries (coatings and personal care) require substantial resources in order to achieve the key research and training objectives of this project. This is complemented by a process Life-Cycle and eco-efficiency analysis, which adds a societal angle to the proposed project and warrants that the training of researchers continues beyond the research aspects of REFINE.
