The course consists of two separate physical gatherings complemented by literature reading and a period of distance-based group work in between meetings. During meetings, invited lecturers, representing various fields of LCA research, present and problematise methodological approaches and applications of LCA based on their research and their experiences of applying LCA in various areas. During meetings, students participate in group discussions where they get a chance to learn from each other's experiences, reflect on their own and other research in view of earlier and current LCA research, and discuss limitations and possibilties for future development of their work. The students will also present their current and planned work to others. An important aspect of the meetings is also to engage in networking activities.The course consists of two separate physical gatherings complemented by literature reading and a period of distance-based group work in between meetings.
