5th Summer School on Sustainable Chemistry for Sustainable Development, The Myths of Renewables, 16-20 September, Lüneburg

The 5th Summer School on Sustainable Chemistry for Sustainable Development jointly organized by ISC3 Research and Education Hub and Leuphana University of Lüneburg provides participants with an understanding of the latest developments in concepts of sustainable chemistry and chemicals management. During the training event from September 16th to 20th 2019, students and professionals from all regions of the world will get together at the campus of the Leuphana University in Lüneburg.

This year’s Summer School on Sustainable Chemistry will take a closer look on renewables. Despite all the hopes linked to renewable resources there are also severe limitations of their use and other pitfalls. The challenges, opportunities and benefits of sustainable chemistry in the field of renewable resources will be discussed.

The trainers’ team consists of scientists and practitioners as well as of individuals who actively operate in different fields of sustainable chemistry and international co-operations. On top of that, experts in the field of sustainable chemistry and renewables will introduce their work and experience.

ISC3 Workshop on Green & Sustainable Chemistry-based Entrepreneurship at the IGCW, 18 October 2019, Mumbai, India

In our efforts to provide holistic support to Sustainable Chemistry innovators globally, and to accelerate the industrial sustainability and profitability through Green & Chemistry Solutions, the ISC3 and its Indian partner, the Green ChemisTree Foundation, are organizing an entrepreneurial session at the Industrial Green Chemistry World 2019 (IGCW) in Mumbai in India.

The “Workshop on Green & Sustainable Chemistry-based Entrepreneurship” on 18 October addresses young Indian chemistry or chemical engineering students, who are interested in exploring entrepreneurship. The workshop provides them with best practice examples of how to be a successful entrepreneur and encourages them to seize the opportunity to become an entrepreneur within the Indian and global ecosystem.

The IGCW is India’s first and only dedicated platform for the Chemical Industry to explore Green Chemistry & Green Engineering trends, technologies and opportunities. To support innovation, entrepreneurs and start-ups in India, the ISC3 and the Green ChemisTree Foundation agreed to work together within the Spiderweb Network.

1st International Sustainable Chemistry Week, 11-15 May 2020, World Conference Centre Bonn, Germany

Building up an international Sustainable Chemistry community

Chemistry is overly present in our daily lives. In fact, nearly all consumer goods include components made by the chemical industry. Thus, Chemistry is an important leverage to establish sustainable development by implementing ecological principles - in developing as well as in industrialized countries.

The International Sustainable Chemistry Week will link politics, business, science, and civil society to accelerate the Sustainable Chemistry transformation. As a leading global platform, the event brings together all key actors to boost networking and the exchange of knowledge and experience.

During one week in the World Conference Center Bonn discussions, workshops, pitches, and exhibitions will shed light on all aspects of Sustainable Chemistry and create an industry-policy-science interface with an international, intersectoral and intergenerational scope. The International Sustainable Chemistry Week is an annual conference and will take place for the first time in 2020.

Connecting existing communities for out-of-the-box thinking and inspirational interaction

The International Sustainable Chemistry Week links the political-strategic debate with case studies and solutions from practice, and thus, co-creates new ideas and out of-the-box thinking across all sectors. Sustainable Chemistry can become a great solution provider in the chemical sector and beyond and the International  Sustainable Chemistry Week will start to exploit this potential.

Details of the conference program:

  • Exhibition and interaction areas for industry, academia, and start-ups
  • Youth engagement through a youth parliament
  • High-level speakers
  • Investor forum
  • Elsevier Green and Sustainable Chemistry Conference (conference fee)
  • Hackathon
  • Gender workshop
  • Africa regional day
  • Award ceremonies (ISC3 Innovation Challenge and the ISC3-Elsevier Green and Sustainable Chemistry Challenge)
  • And much more
