The Holland Research School of Molecular Chemistry (HRSMC) and the Van ’t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences (HIMS) invite you to the Sustainability Workshop: towards a circular economy.

Soort bijeenkomst:

Talks and Workshops


During this interesting afternoon, attendees are invited to listen and think about the role of the chemist in the transition towards a circular economy by taking you away from your daily lab and computer work. Four speakers from different backgrounds will elucidate on different aspects of sustainability, such as legal aspects, political aspects, business aspects as well as technological aspects. After the talks, you can choose one of the three interactive workshops, in which one of the topics will be further addressed. After the closure, in which the participants give a short presentation about their findings in the workshop, the discussion can be continued while enjoying a beer or two.
