How we are organized
The ISC3 is a new international organisation that GIZ is setting up on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment and the German Federal Environment Agency. The ISC3 is located in Bonn, with approximately 20 highly qualified employees and an international orientation. The centre is based in GIZ, but has a high degree of autonomy, its own branding and operates as an independent international centre.
The Centre has established a Research Hub at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg and an Innovation Hub at DECHEMA in Frankfurt. Further Regional Hubs will established in the next years to strengthen the international cooperation on sustainable chemistry. The first Regional Hub is to be established at the University of Massachusetts Lowell with the mission to reach out to the Americas.
