Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

Materials provide the foundation of the modern global economy. They are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonising society as they enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility and resource efficiency, among others. Nevertheless, many materials are becoming critical.

Therefore, we need to develop robust solutions and game-changing technologies that allow for a sustainable stream of materials.

Sustainable Material Solutions with SUMA

The SUMA Master programme aims to train tomorrow’s resource engineers in collaborative work in a global world, gathering together some of the best educational programmes in the field of sustainable materials engineering in Europe. The goal is to ensure young scientists obtain a solid background in chemistry and physics, with competencies for designing and tailoring new material systems for specific functions, and with a specific view to the sustainability of processes and technologies in the field of material development. SUMA puts a particularly strong focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership and takes a holistic approach to the materials paradigm by exploring circular (eco) design, materials substitution, life cycle engineering and circular economy design, materials processing and recycling, manufacturing and innovation....

The increasing demand for raw materials, their price volatility, the production concentration and the market distortions imposed by some countries, confront Europe and other world regions with a number of challenges along the entire value chain. To tackle this supply risk challenge and to deal with environmental problems arising from too large emissions of waste (such as CO2), technological innovation is required with respect to exploration of new resources and sustainable primary mining, sustainable use of resources in specific products and production processes (e.g. substitution of critical metals in materials), prevention of waste generation, valorisation of secondary (alternative) resources and recovery/recycling of resources from end-of-life products....

MSc International Business: Sustainable Finance

What duty do financial institutions and corporations have to engage in long-term sustainable development? How can they balance this with the wishes of shareholders, when these are focused on the short term? How can benchmarks on the sustainability performance of investments lead to higher returns? And crucially, how can sustainability challenges be turned into competitive advantages? This specialisation focuses on how financial institutions and organisations can implement sustainability in ways that allow them to reach their strategic goals. You take a multidisciplinary approach – management, corporate strategy, accounting, reporting, marketing and more – to issues such as sustainable banking, investing, real estate and microcredit. You consider how the financial market is organised and how, within this mainstream framework, companies can be more sustainable. How can sustainability profitably be achieved today and in the future? Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics (SBE) is the world leader in sustainable finance. The Finance Department is internationally recognised for the cutting-edge research it was doing in this field long before it landed on the agenda of America’s Ivy League schools and other European institutions. The department also founded two leading institutes for sustainable finance research: the European Centre for Corporate Engagement (ECCE) and the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB). These institutes collaborate with pension funds, rating agencies, corporations, and regulators to conduct research and develop tools that matter to practitioners. In a nutshell, SBE was the source and remains the hub of this field worldwide. In this... [-]
