Welcome the joint SuMo Continuation and Treeseach seminar “What are the next steps to achieve sustainable bio-based materials?”
Date: Thursday 14th March 2019
Venue: Palmstedtssalen, Chalmers campus Johanneberg, Chalmersplatsen 1, Gothenburg
We invite you to a seminar focusing on developing next generation of bio-based materials. The seminar will focus on challenges we face, for instance global warming, high emissions of green-house gases, and need of new bio-based materials replacing the fossil-based ones, to mention a few. Our speakers will also show how these border-crossing actions serve as inspiration for research and development. We have the honor to host the former president of Chalmers, Prof. Karin Markides now chair of the Swedish Scientific Council for Sustainable Development and Prof. Magnus Nydén, global chief scientist at NOURYON, as speakers. Prof Karin Markides will give her view on sustainable development and Magnus Nydén, will focus his talk on how collaboration between industry and academia are used to tackle sustainability challenges. This will be followed up by short presentations from industry, institute and academia, highlighting research and development successes when working towards a common research agenda.
