Sustainable use of earth´s diminishing resources by exploring more efficient utilisation of waste and side products

In September we were looking for enthusiastic and motivated scientists from various research fields to join our Inorganic Side Streams (inSTREAMS) research programme at the University of Oulu. The application period is now closed.

  • The TECH research theme concentrates on the efficient, safe and sustainable use of high-volume inorganic side streams from various industries.
  • The VALUE research theme focuses on creating new, sustainable business models, strategies and value chains based on these inorganic high-value side streams.
The TECH research theme

High volume applications of inorganic side streams

Tenure Track 1: Development of technologies to utilize residues as novel binders for construction and stabilization.


High value materials from inorganic side streams

Tenure Track 2: Developing value added advanced materials and demonstrating novel technologies


Advanced characterization of inorganic materials

Tenure Track 3: Characterization of physical and chemical properties of inorganic materials and processes

The VALUE research theme

Industrial value chain development to enable higher inorganic side stream utilization

Tenure Track 4: Commercialization and productization of efficient technologies requiring reshaping and re-engineering of the existing value chains


Responsible business strategy to renew organizations and ecosystems

Tenure Track 5: Advancing scientific knowledge on responsible business such as inter-organizational collaboration, international and strategic entrepreneurial and managerial activities
