Fraunhofer IWKS stands for the responsible use of resources. Recovering valuable materials from a product cycle and reintroducing them into a new cycle – that is the goal of research. The energy turnaround, the mobility turnaround and digitization in particular are accompanied by an increased demand for specific raw materials, without which the respective technological functionalities cannot be realized.
The Darmstadt Excellence Graduate School for Energy Science and Energy Technology at TU Darmstadt, which has been funded since November 2012 as part of the then Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments, offers doctoral candidates optimal conditions for doctoral studies to develop their scientific skills in a concentrated manner.
The Life Cycle Assessment Workshop is an event for young scientists who are active in the field of life cycle assessment or who apply life cycle assessment to practical issues. It offers young scientists a forum for the scientific discussion of their work, for networking and for the personal exchange of experiences. The LCA workshop is continuously supervised by the Department of Material Flow Management and Resource Economy of the TU Darmstadt.
