PhD course: Advances in life cycle assessment, 5 HP/ECTS

Start:Monday, 17 April, 2023, 00:00 End:Thursday, 25 May, 2023, 00:00

Welcome to a course for PhD students that gives an in-depth orientation of LCA. It includes a broad range of LCA-related topics: the methodology, its application, its relation to other assessment tools, its role in decision-processes, etc. It is a collaboration between the partner universities within the Swedish Life Cycle Center (SLC): Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Chalmers University of Technology and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.


The objective of this course is to give the student a broad view of life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology and application, including knowledge on state-of-the-art research in selected areas, disseminate the expertise and experiences of senior LCA researchers to a new generation of PhD students, and help the PhD students create an informal network of young LCA researchers.


The first week will be held in Gothenburg, at Chalmers University of Technology. The second week will be held in Uppsala, at the SLU campus.
