The Antwerp World Diamond Centre and the University of Antwerp warmly invite you to get to know the diamond industry inside out during this two week intensive summer school. During the first week, students discover the world of diamonds in every aspect. Topics include the historical, geological, technical, economical, commercial and ethical perspectives of the global diamond trade. During the second week, the summer school builds further on this introductory track by focussing on "innovation" in every facet of the global diamond industry, from Mine to Finger. The focus on sustainability is crucial here.
The summer school took place from 28 August until 8 September 2017 and was targetted at Master students, graduates, PhD students & researchers and (young) professionals from both within and outside the industry.
