The International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3) is a new international organisation that GIZ is setting up on behalf of the German Federal Government. The aim of the ISC3 is to make a substantial contribution to overcoming the challenges in the field of chemical safety and management, and to help the concept of sustainable chemistry achieve a breakthrough worldwide. By doing so the ISC3 will support achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To this end, the Centre is expected to act as a catalyst and a forum for the international community, as an international knowledge platform, a global think tank and a motor and multiplier driving innovations in Sustainable Chemistry.

The ISC3 will be located in Bonn, with an initial contingent of approx. 20 highly qualified employees and an international orientation. The centre will be based in GIZ, but will have a high degree of autonomy and its own branding, and from the outset will operate as an independent international centre. The Centre is also planning to establish a “Research Hub” at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg and an “Innovation Hub” at DECHEMA in Frankfurt.

Science and Innovation Coordinator (f/m) at the International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3)

Policy, International Processes and Stakeholder Coordinator (f/m) at the International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3)
