Who & Why
The EWAS  is open to PhD students, post-docs and early-career researchers from social and physical sciences investigating the political, social, economic, environmental, health or technological aspects of e-waste. Researchers must be associated to a university or scientific institution and possess a good knowledge of English. Through a mix of expert lectures, research presentations, group wok and study tours, participants will have a chance to:
  • Gain practical insights and broader perspective beyond disciplinary focus
  • Share research ideas with domain experts; get rigorous feedback
  • Connect with an international network of peers
  • Visit state-of-the-art e-waste management facilities
Fees & Grant 
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the participation fee for the EWAS is € 600 per participant. This includes the full tuition, accommodation, meals and study tours for the entire duration of the EWAS. There is financial support (although limited) available as travel grants to some participants, based on merit and need.
