Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) provide training for citizens that aims to empower them to learn, by informing them on the following topics.

MOOC by EIT RawMaterials Academy and Climate-KIC on e-waste

The E-Waste Challenge: with our growing appetite for electrical and electronic products, combined with rapid innovation and ever-shorter product lifespans, e-waste has now become one of the fastest growing waste streams.

This course will help you to understand why and how we must manage e-waste in an environmentally sound manner and how you can take action on e-waste in your own life, business, or organisation.

The MOOC is a free course that is open to all. It is designed for anyone with an interest in taking action on managing our e-waste.

MOOC by EIT RawMaterials Academy, TU Clausthal, TU Delft, Leiden University and Swerea on Engineering Design for a Circular Economy

Rare metals and other critical materials are all around us: in our phones, computers, cars and cities. But these valuable resources are in limited supply, and accessing them is rapidly becoming one of the great challenges of our time.

Combining knowledge and case-studies from academia and industry, learners will be faced with new questions: What is the resource challenge? How are new business trends changing our use and perception of products? What effect will this have on the products of the future?

Discover and develop sustainable design and engineering methods to improve the reuse, repair, remanufacturing, and recycling of products for a circular economy.

The MOOC starts on 9 May, 2018 and is a free course that is open to all.

EIT Community MOOCs

These additional MOOCs offered by members of the EIT Community may also interest you:

    • Big Data in Health: explore key concepts in data analytics, systems theory and information governance, and apply them to healthcare decision making. Register for the MOOC here.
    • Impact of Climate Change on Public Health: explore the impact of climate change on public health, and discover ways to influence behaviours and policies at all levels. Register for the MOOC here.

To take advantage of this potential, digital activities will be used – not only to make knowledge accessible to the broader population but also to improve formal education by implementing modern pedagogical technologies online.

Many of these activities allow unlimited participation of large groups with diverse professional backgrounds.
