Innovative solutions to combat and prevent pollution in the areas of mobility, energy, urbanisation, and agriculture very often originate in the chemical sector, its research community and in start-up companies. Examples are the replacements for fossil fuels, new energy storage systems and new construction and insulation materials. However, innovative solutions do not find their way easily to the markets.
The ISC3 Innovation Hub initiates and supports sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship in the chemical and chemicals-related sectors. Acting as an innovation promoter, the ISC3 Innovation Hub aims to shape the transformation towards sustainability across countries and along value chains whenever chemicals are applied. Jointly with a global network of partners, the ISC3 catalyses tech transfer from science to industry and between regions and countries. At the heart of the innovation activities lies the ISC3 Global Start-up Service with its goal of supporting entrepreneurs in becoming Sustainable Chemistry Changemakers. The ISC3 Innovation Challenge highlights outstanding projects from all over the world and promotes the most promising innovations in the field of sustainable chemistry.
