Please note: The Stakeholder Forum will be rescheduled. Please send an e-mail to contact© for further information on the event.

The International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3) will host its first Stakeholder Forum in summer 2019 in Bonn, Germany. The event will introduce the participants to the work programme of the ISC3 and invites them to engage in the dialogue on the emerging concept of sustainable chemistry.

As a new international collaborative centre, the ISC3 believes in the power of dialogue and cooperation as key drivers of transformative change. With the first Stakeholder Forum the ISC3 wants to interlink representatives from policy, industry, academia and civil society and discuss how sustainable chemistry can contribute to achieving the SDGs and become a solution provider for a circular, climate-resilient society.

Furthermore, the event provides a new forum to discuss the ideas and activities of the centre to foster sustainable chemistry solutions worldwide through collaboration, innovation, education, research and information.

With this new dialogue forum, the ISC3 hopes to engage with all interested parties in an open dialogue, learn about the different expectations towards sustainable chemistry and discuss new ideas for the work programme.
