SCHEDULE

Have a look, what we present to you!
Please note: the times are indicated as CEST (Central European Summer Time)! To make it easier for you to schedule see the “Timezone” section where we provide an overview for you : )

Timezones

An easy guide to your Timezone:

Consider that our event will take place during summer time.

 

Times in the schedule are indicated as CEST (Central European Summer Time) – that means this time counts for you if you are close to Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm = UTC +2

If you are say in New York or Toronto (Eastcoast):
then you are normally EST or UTC -5 but since it is summer time, you are EDT or UTC -4. In easy – just substract 6 hours from all the times given (aka CEST -6).

 

If you live in e.g. Los Angeles (Westcoast):
you substract 9 hours (CEST -9).

 

If you are in Peking:
you do not have summer time: thus it is UTC +8 i.e. the event start for you at 3PM (CEST +6).

OUR NETWORK
FAQ - BUT FUN

We are a team of students located throughout Germany. We are working in different areas including biology, medicine, material sciences, design as well as networking and are connected by our passion for sustainability in science. We are ambitious to change research for a better future. For us, for you, for everyone.

At some point you start to notice the huge amount of waste that is being produced, how many chemicals you waste – And you wonder how to change that?

Pondering on how sustainable research is actually being conducted. 

In our daily work we see how resources are being used carelessly, how much energy is wasted and how little is being made to prevent this. This created a strong urge in us to do something about this. Our passion is to change the way research is being performed – making it greener and better for both us and the planet. We want to motivate more people who want to participate and be a part of this change. Our motivation is to encourage exchange between people interested in green laboratory work and to create a network where people can learn and interact with people interested in this topic, improving research everyday. At the end it becomes impossible not to notice all the areas you can improve in your laboratory work.

Since creating a more sustainable culture is a global problem, our conference is for everyone. Whether you are a student who noticed mountains of plastic waste in your lab and are now interested in sustainable laboratories, a professor who wants to find out what is currently being done in this field or a company which either already works in this area or wants to expand its knowledge in this area. You are welcome to join as many talks as you want, to check out our workshops, to expand your knowledge and to connect to other participants.

Currently sustainability is becoming more and more important in all areas of our lives. However, sometimes we are trying to fight this battle alone instead of creating a network of people with the same motivations and intentions. Participating in this conference will show you the interesting work of people through easy and short presentations and will give you the chance to get in touch with people interested in this topic…

Yes, and registration for this conference is completely free. This way we will be able to provide you with all the information you need to join the conference on the 14th and 15th of May 2022 15:00-18:00 MET. Further, it really helps us to keep an overview on the number of people who signed up for the conference.
