PARC supports education of postgraduates and young professionals

Postgraduates and young professionals can already by now mark in their calendar that by July 2024 they will have free of charge access to the 10th Summer School on Sustainable Chemistry for Sustainable Development at Leuphana University in Lüneburg, Germany.

Focus will be on sustainable chemistry and Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD), and the summer school is designed for postgraduates and young professionals who deal with or are professionally interested in the topic of sustainable chemistry as a crosscutting issue.

The programme includes a theoretical part as well as workshops, group discussions and an excursion to exemplify and deepen practical aspects of sustainable chemistry and SSbD. The summer school is also an opportunity to meet researchers from PARC and learn about the SSbD toolbox developed in PARC.

Registration deadline is 1 June 2024. But be aware that if you need to apply for a travel grant the deadline is 31 December 2023. Please visit the Leuphana University website to find more information on how to apply and register.

The Leuphana Summer School is organised jointly by the Research and Education Hub of the International Sustainable Chemistry Collaboration Centre (ISC3 – International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre), the Chair for Sustainable Chemistry and Material Resources at the Institute of Sustainable Chemistry of Leuphana University Lüneburg (nachhaltige-chemie-und-ressourcen_englisch | Leuphana) and the IRISS project (IRISS (
