Environmental Risk Camp - A perspective from bio/nanotechnologies and geo-engineering

Technologies influence our day-to-day lives, but what are their impacts on our environment? The course introduces students to the impacts of risk technologies on the environment and the instruments developed for technology assessment. Aspects and concepts of risk, governance, policy, and environmental ethics will be the subject for 9 days in August 2024. Three technological developments will be discussed: bioengineering, plastics and nanoparticles, and geo-engineering.

The summer course (4 ECTS) is a mix of lectures, group exercises, university visits and intercultural activities and a joint initiative from BOKU University/Austria, Babeș-Bolyai University/Romania and Kaunas University of Technology/Lithuania, and is organised as Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme (BIP).
