 The Antwerp World Diamond Centre and the University of Antwerp warmly invite you to get to know the diamond industry inside out during the first full-fledged digital edition of this summer school. Throughout this intensive programme, students will discover the world of diamonds in every aspect. The course includes fascinating virtual site visits, lectures, workshops and keynotes by internationally renowned academics and professionals. This first digital edition offers the same inspiring content, innovative approach and collaborative environment as the physical version does.

The summer school is targeted at final year Bachelor students and Master students from different disciplines, as well as at young professionals and researchers, interested in deepening their knowledge about diamonds and its industry.

The summer school takes place from 30 August - 3 September 2021 and is preceded by a preparatory module from 23 - 27 August during which primary insights will be given so participants can duly prepare for the course. These preparatory talks, readings and clips can be processed at one’s own pace and will cover all topics dealt with during the summer school. All participants are invited to follow this track as a more equal starting level of understanding will favour collaboration and maximise the knowledge transfer during the summer school itself.
