Overview: Sustainability gets plenty of buzz today from the boardroom to the business journals — but what does it mean to chemists and materials scientists? Sustainability can be defined very broadly and in many ways, making it difficult for scientists to translate corporate intentions into their day-to-day work. This webcast provides a practical guide to the scientific challenges of sustainability and proposes tangible approaches to overcoming those challenges, covering topics such as Energy Science, Green Chemistry, Molecular Science and Sustainable Laboratory Operations. The speakers will also present examples from industry and suggest an approach for how scientists can showcase their contribution to the sustainability initiatives in their companies.

What you'll learn in this webinar:
  • How scientists can establish a link between corporate sustainability initiatives and their own work
  • What are the "Grand Challenges" of sustainability science?
  • Insilico and experimental approaches to sustainability science
  • Unlocking the hidden value of existing laboratory data in LIMS, ELN and other existing databases to help make your lab more sustainable both environmentally and economically
  • How to communicate your contribution to corporate sustainability

Who should attend?
  • Researchers/R&D Managers
  • Laboratory Managers/Directors/Supervisors
  • Laboratory Technicians/Operators
  • VPs of R&D
