Join us for our first free and online Sustainable Research Symposium!
11 May 2021
Does the amount of plastic waste in the lab make you sad? And would you like your lab work to be greener?
Then join the Sustainable Research Symposium!
Research labs leave a considerable ecological footprint behind due to the massive consumption of energy, water, materials and reagents. Additionally, labs produce a substantial amount of waste – in fact, academic research labs produce an estimated 5.5 million tons of plastic waste each year!
Some of the eco footprint is a necessary evil but we can do a lot to make our research more sustainable. Join this symposium to learn more about:
- what you can do to reduce the eco footprint of your lab work
- what researchers and institutions in other countries are doing to go green
- how green purchasing for the lab can make a real difference
- how you can get your boss and colleagues on board
Who’s invited to tune in?
Everyone working in laboratories or with an interest in sustainable laboratory work is invited to join! You will learn something and be inspired whether you are an undergrad, a PhD student, a postdoc, a group leader, a technician, a research assistant, a facility manager, a sustainability officer, or a procurement officer.
Sign up ASAP to secure your (virtual) seat at the symposium here!
The symposium is free of charge thanks to Tuborgfonden (the Tuborg Foundation) who is kindly sponsoring our event!
Our speakers will cover a variety of topics related to sustainability in an academic research context. Learn more about our inspirational speakers here:
