"The Factory" Summer Institute

The Factory Summer Institute

The ESRs completed their second summer institute “The Factory” from 30 May to 17 June 2022 in Norway and Switzerland. It covered the glacial landscapes, hazards, energy transition, and general factory of sediment production within the mountain source.

The main philosophy of this second Summer Institute was to immerse ESRs within a wide international and intersectorial panel of industrial partners and professionals, who provided them with a course-intensive program of technical and soft skills to accelerate their research, write and present their results, consolidate their profiles and develop concrete plans for their future. In addition, the ESRs visited modern, active, smaller-scale S2S systems in Norway and Switzerland.


S2S-FUTURE project gathers an outstanding European research and training network of 15 PhD students, hosted at world-leading academic institutions and industrial companies, whose aim is to develop the S2S paradigm as a powerful vector for understanding sedimentary accumulations as natural resources.

The project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860383.
