IHE Upcycling of Industry Leftovers


Call for participation in workshop

Deadline for submissions: Thursday 1 January 2015

Workshop dates: Friday 10 to Monday 20 April 2015


We are inviting six UK universities to participate in the fourth round of collaborative upcycling design workshops with a ten day workshop in April 2015 in Wuxi, China. In addition, three East Asian universities and nine Chinese universities will also be selected to participate in this programme.

Each participating university is expected to send a team comprised of one teacher and two students. This workshop offers a good opportunity for your university to set up links and explore collaboration with institutions and industry internationally. 

This call is part of our international collaboration work (more information available here).
