About Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability, Master - at University of Bordeaux

AMIS is a Master program which explores the theme of “Substitution of critical or toxic materials in products for optimized performance”.

Funded by EIT RawMaterials since 2015 and labelled by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology) since 2016, AMIS is a Master program in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability which explores the theme of “Substitution of critical or toxic materials in products for optimized performance”. It also covers the topics of “Material chain optimization for end-of-life products” and “Product and services design for the circular economy” - all of which are central themes of the AMIS. The primary focus of the AMIS program is metal and mineral raw materials. Bio-based and polymer materials are studied in view of their substitution potential. Other materials are also analyzed in the context of multimaterial product recycling. In addition, the AMIS program includes a solid package of courses and project work in innovation and entrepreneurship.
