The TRIBOS+ consortium received a new GreenTRIBOS EJD ITN project, part of the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which will be a joint doctorate programme on Green Tribology and Sustainable Engineering.

This project reflects the successful implementation of the Joint European Master's degree programme TRIBOS, which has been running successfully since 2013. Prof. dr. Mitjan Kalin will coordinate the project and the consortium will consolidate its important role in the European research space for green and sustainable future.

GreenTRIBOS is a planned joint doctorate programme on Green Tribology for Sustainable Engineering, which is becoming a necessary requirement for the future engineering design. It brings together four international leading complementary groups (University of Ljubljana, University of Coimbra, University of Leeds and Lulea University of Technology) in different areas of green tribology, which have the capacity and excellence to make a step-change in advancing the Green tribology area. The aim is to train a new generation of engineers and scientists that will be equipped with high-quality multidisciplinary scientific knowledge, as well as with associated transferrable skills, to become fully creative and innovative with an entrepreneurial mindset and be able to transfer science into innovation in industrial environments for economic benefit.

The project involves 26 partners; in addition to institutes, universities, NGOs and governmental organizations, multinational companies, such as TOTAL, Volvo, SKF, Vattenfall, Oerlikon, Sandvik, and Cummins are also participating. More details will be available here http://greentribos.eu/.
