The Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship programme is an international programme for masters and PhD students and their academic mentors on the circular economy. We work with leading universities around the world on this programme including; USA – MIT, UC Berkeley & Yale, UK: Imperial College London, Cranfield University, Royal College of Art & London Business School MAINLAND EUROPE – TU Delft, Kedge Business School and Politecnico di Milano LATIN AMERICA – Tecnologico de Monterrey CHINA – Tongji University INDIA – National Institute of Design.Through a competition mechanism, each year they choose 18 students from these and other global universities to come on a journey of learning with us, alongside their academic mentors.As part of the fellowship programme they run a week long summer school in London. The week is deliberately scheduled during the same week at the Summit (15 June), which all participants on the fellowship attend. On the day before the Summit we run a CE100 Summer School symposium with a small number of our CE100 members. The aim of the workshop is to add real world insights and perspectives into the discussions from people actively working in the circular economy space.Rodrigo Garcia joined as on of the CE100 members.
