Having half an hour left prior to the presentation on „Digital transformation – of chemists or the chemical industry?“ Arne Ramstetter and I walked the floors up and down at Aalen University, HS Aalen. A poster attached to an office drew our attention: The 17 sustainable development goals

By coincidence Prof. Holzbaur, in charge of sustainable development at Aalen University, showed up and explained us the concept how SD is locally being implemented in the areas of „academic education“, „research“ and „transfers“. HS Aalen, part of local sustainability initiative, regularly offers students the opportunity to work on sustainability related projects, a win-win approach: Students gain practical experience and develop competences. The initiative benefits from the project results. Great to see how an university is „taking responsibility for social responsibility“
