The Young Chemistry Network (JCF), the Young Business Chemists (JuWiChem), both part of the German Chemical Society (GDCh), and the European Young Chemists Network (EYCN) cooperate for a joint event at the ACHEMA 2018, the world forum and leading show for the process industries.
Our very own session “Sustainability – renew, resource and rethink” takes place on Monday the 11th June 2018 under the headliner ”Raw Materials & Alternative Feedstocks”. The session will host five international lecturers from chemical industry, toplevel sustainability research and even the United Nations, who will give the participants a deeper look into sustainability in chemistry, innovative solutions and future-oriented research and economics. Next to the interdisciplinary lectures a framework programm including a poster session and a discussion with the speakers for young researchers is organised to give you the chance of reviewing your own research focusing on the idea of sustainability.
