ISC3 acts as an international Think Tank to promote and discuss the concept of Sustainable Chemistry. In order to frame the international discussion, the ISC3 supports the dialogue-based development of a set of key principles for Sustainable Chemistry along with the respective sustainability assessment tools. By publicizing thought-starters, reports and new scientific findings in Sustainable Chemistry on public and scientific platforms, the ISC3 continuously stimulates the cross-sectoral discussion on potential and perspectives of Sustainable Chemistry. International visibility of the ISC3 Think Tank activities and further intellectual exchange is promoted by organizing and attending scientific conferences.
The ISC3-Research & Education Hub is currently identifying research topics on Sustainable Chemistry hereby screening cross-sectoral topics for example, “the potentials and limits of circular economy for chemical products” or “the possible contributions of chemical science to the sound management of chemicals and the Sustainable Development Goals” as well as specific topics such as “the contributions of Sustainable Chemistry to sustainable construction and urbanization” and many more”. These research topics will be addressed in exchange with international academic institutions as well as with institutions from developing countries.
