The plattform aims at a close cooperation with research institutes, environmental agencies, regulators, small and medium sized enterprises, industry and industry associations and acts as a contact point for members from academia, industry, and policy with respect to environmentally, economically and scientifically relevant topics. Upcoming research themes may be taken up rapidly and tackled by interdisciplinary research groups. Results and achievements are presented to the public during regular thematic workshops, symposia and courses.
