Our virtual workshop enters the third round - Be part of it!

Your ideas are too good to be forgotten.

You have always had an idea of how to revolutionise the way we work and live with plastics in a sustainable way? 

Then take part in our #sustainabilitychallenge: 'Reduce | Re-Use | Recycle | Recover: From Waste to Wonder: Navigating Challenges and Unlocking Innovation in the Plastics Industry of Tomorrow' and make a difference - shape the future with your innovative and sustainable ideas. 

We are always striving to further develop our processes and products and make them more sustainable. This is a continuous process and requires innovative and sustainable ideas.

Scientific findings, among other things, are of great importance for the corresponding progress. Therefore, the Indo-German Centre for Sustainability (IGCS) has supported students in interdisciplinary research, teaching, training and exchange in the field of sustainability and sustainable development for many years now.

Together we organize an annual virtual workshop where students learn about strategies and challenges in sustainability in the plastics industry and can implement their own ideas.

Take your chance for intercultural exchange and interdisciplinary learning. Moreover, you might get the opportunity to carry out a project supported by motan and the IGCS.
