Master's Degree in Engineering Grenoble INP - Phelma, Advanced materials for innovation and sustainability (AMIS)

Présentation et objectifs

AMIS, the Master’s Program in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability tackles the following themes - all of which are central themes of the EIT Raw Materials:

  • Substitution of critical or toxic materials in products and for optimized performance
  • Material chain optimization for end-of-life products
  • Product and services design for the circular economy

The primary focus of the adaptation is on metal and mineral raw materials. Bio-base and polymer materials are covered in view of their substitution potential and other materials in the context of multi-material product recycling.
In addition, the AMIS Program includes a solid package of courses and project work in innovation and entrepreneurship.

Students’ mobility is an integrated part of the two-year program, during which they will study at two of the consortium partner universities. Upon completion of the program, students will receive a double degree.


To gain transferable skills such as entrepreneurship, negotiation techniques, intellectual property, problem solving, working cooperatively and creatively, co-design and life cycle approaches which will enable students to consolidate a professional career.

To become an expert in the field of raw materials, particularly in sustainable functional materials and alongside get a holistic view on value and process chain.

To take part in a mobility program and take advantage of the complementary skills of the universities in the network.

To become a change agent with an entrepreneurship mindset able to safeguard the sustainability of EIT Raw Materials throughout the industrial and research landscape.

To enter a PhD program in Europe or elsewhere, for instance at one of the network laboratories.
