The IGCS – Motan Workshop: ‘Reduce | Re-Use | Recycle | Recover – Challenges and Strategies in the handling of Plastics’

The two-day virtual workshop jointly organized by IGCS and motan is dedicated to support students from Indian and German academic institutions to develop and foster sustainable ideas. This workshop is a continuation of our joint vision: incorporate innovative and sustainable ideas generation in interdisciplinary research, teaching, training and exchange in the area of sustainable development. Together motan and IGCS would like to motivate and support students to conduct research in the area of plastics and the circular economy.

Thus, IGCS and motan jointly extend an invitation to be a part of our event. We are always looking for motivated students to carry out a research project or an industry internship supported by motan and the IGCS.

Applications are now open until November 14.
