Olivier Bonnefoy, project leader and researcher at the Center for Industrial and Natural Process Sciences (SPIN), explains why this collective success is a significant milestone.
What does this project entail, and who is it for?
This involves creating a new master’s level curriculum open to the best students worldwide. Over two years, the 32 students (including 22 scholarship recipients) who join will gain expertise in multiphase systems, meaning systems composed of grains, bubbles, or droplets, such as aerosols, pastes, powders, and foams. The applications are diverse and largely related to sustainable development: hydrogen, recycling, reprocessing, CO2-free electricity, and more. This new program, incorporating theoretical classes, practical sessions, and internships, is international in its recruitment and pedagogy.
Courses will be alternately held at Mines Saint-Étienne (France), Politecnico di Torino (Italy), and the Technical University of Munich (Germany) . Upon completion of the training, delivered in English, students will earn not one but three degrees from the various institutions attended. The first cohort is scheduled for September 2024.
