Description of the research programme of the CML
Friday 30 January 2015 were the final presentations of the last course of the Minor Sustainable Development. This year the Area Study was about Wheels of Metals: a circular economy for metals. All students were challenged to write an Urban Mining Business Plan of Rotterdam.
The ‘Stans Prize 2014' (for the best thesis, report or article produced by a CML student) has been awarded to Myrthe Fonck for her research: "Human-lion conflicts in the Nairobi National Park - Lion diet and factors influencing lion prey choice”
China's booming aquaculture industry relies increasingly on fishmeal made from wild-caught fish. This practice depletes wild fish stocks and strains fragile ocean ecosystems, but a new study by Stanford University, Leiden University, University of Wollongong, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm University and Shanghai Ocean University, offers a more sustainable path. This research is published in Science at January 9, 2015.
