Carolina Paes


Graduate from EIT RawMaterials International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM) 

Carolina, always passionate about innovation and technology, especially when they are aligned to meet social and environmental needs, desired to work in this area and looked for academic opportunities that would bring her closer to her professional goal.  

The SINReM multidisciplinary programme allowed Carolina to get closer to innovate recycling technologies that contribute to the circular economy transition and to learn how to secure raw materials for future generations. 

She is the author of an article Green Recovery Policies for the COVID-19 Crisis: Modelling the Impact on the Economy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions published during the summer internship at VITO, one of SINReM's partners and was  selected through a competitive process for an internship at Anheuser-Busch InBev, multinational drink and brewing company based in Leuven. 

My experience with the EIT Alumni Community was enriching and allowed me to meet incredible people around the world who have life goals like mine: using innovation and technology to solve social and environmental problems, reducing socioeconomic discrepancies with a circular approach! 

Carolina participated in EIT Alumni COVID-19 Challenge and with 3 ideas out of the 5 winning ones.  

She is also part of Women@EIT Local Representative focused on spreading and empowering other women in the Raw Materials sector.  

Being part of the EIT Community offers many advantages such as access to online courses which was extremely important for me to keep growing during the pandemic. And above all, it makes you meet inspiring people and build a support network for your professional career.
