The focus will be on practical examples of applying LCA in industry and improving the environmental performance and sustainability of products and services.

The course is part of the modern and modular European Master Program set up in the framework of the EU FP7 project iNTeg-Risk “Early Recognition, Monitoring and Integrated Management of Emerging, New Technology related Risks”, by Steinbeis University ( STI Advanced Risk Technologies ), University of Stuttgart ( ZIRIUS ) and other project partners. The emphasis of this program is on management and analysis of emerging risks related to new technologies.

The course Life Cycle Analysis and Assessment is part of certified and accredited education system and as such enables the participants to earn the European ECTS credit points (see http://ec.europa.eu/education/lifelong-learning-policy/ects_en.htm ). The course is open both for students of the universities participating in the project and for the external participants.
