The SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) have been adopted at the United Nations Summit in 2015 with their 17 goals and 169 targets to be achieved by 2030. To encourage students’ challenge to this initiative, the Student Program will be held on 23 September. This calls for research proposals that are not constrained by conventional practice to further applications of chemical engineering to achieve the SDGs. Experienced researchers and engineers with knowledge and skills who could help conduct proposed research, research and governmental institutions promoting technology transfer, socially responsible investors considering the environment, society, governance will be invited as audience in an interactive session. The expected result of this program is collaboration and actions in the region and beyond. Submission of the proposal has been closed on June 30, 2019.

Financial support (100,000 JPY per group and the exemption from conference registration fees for 5 participants per group) are granted for 10 outstanding proposals shown below from APCChE headquarter, JSPS Kakenhi Grant (JP19HP0303), and our sponsor companies; Daicel Corporation, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., and Tosoh Corporation. Selection was made based on the review by 7 experts from 4 countries from the viewpoints of 1. Contribution to SDGs and novelty, 2. Scientific cogency, and 3. Feasibility and spillover effect.
