World's first United Nations University Hub with a climate focus at TU Hamburg

We are very happy to be part of the world's first United Nations University Hub "Engineering to Face Climate Change" here at the Hamburg University of Technology. The partnership between TU Hamburg and UNU aims to develop sustainable technical solutions to tackle climate change. Through three research areas innovative strategies are being developed to better manage resources, inform the public, and train researchers worldwide. One of two clusters started within this cooperation, “Circular Technologies for Bio-based Materials”, led by Prof. Smirnova, will research innovative technologies for materials made from biomass, focusing on both the production of biomaterials and the circular economy. This work will be central to the corresponding Campus Lab “Circular Economy”.
