GREEN LAB: REDUCING THE IMPACTS OF UNIVERSITY LABORATORIES IN THE ENVIRONMENT

Friday, June 28 @ 9:30 am5:00 pm

Laboratories consume three to five times more energy and resources than standard office spaces, with significant environmental impacts from constant equipment operation and disposable plastic use.

Against this background, the project ‘Sustainable Laboratories’ (NACH-LABS), a joint effort of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, the Technical University of Darmstadt, and IUTA e.V., the European School of Sustainability Science and Research (ESSSR), the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme and the UK Consortium for Sustainability Research (UK-CSR), are organising the international symposium Green Labs: Reducing the Impacts of University Laboratories on the Environment.

Due to its focus on sustainability, the event will be held online. Therefore, the Sustainability Committee of IBEC, in collaboration with PCB and Nanomed Spain, believes that organizing a satellite event to collectively follow the main event would be a great opportunity to bring together our community, facilitating networking and sharing local experiences.

This event will consist of two parts. In the first part, the official conference will be streamed. The second part will be an opportunity for local networking and experience sharing of our journey towards more sustainable research.

We invite you to present a 5-minute short talk on your experiences in making your labs more sustainable. You can register and send your proposals.
