SSbD24 Conference

Call for Papers

The Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD) framework by the European Commission is expected to revolutionize the way how chemicals and materials are designed and evaluated. The SSbD24 Conference aims to provide a discussion forum for experts from various relevant fields and sectors who have started to work on the tools and criteria to operationalize SSbD towards a common roadmap on future development and operation of the SSbD framework. The following topics will be covered:

  • Frameworks and concepts relevant for SSbD (e.g., green and sustainable chemistry, Safe-by-Design chemicals and materials)
  • Safety and sustainability assessments in the early innovation phase
  • Toolboxes for SSbD
  • Emerging concepts (e.g., social and economic assessments within SSbD, absolute sustainability assessments, consideration of trade-offs)
  • SSbD case studies
  • Science-policy-business dialogue

The deadline for abstract submission (oral or poster) is May 31, 2024.

Specific timeslots will be reserved for Early Career Scientists.

All relevant information about the conference, including how to submit an abstract, can be found on the conference website.

We hope to see many of you on the beautiful Monte Verità in Southern Switzerland!
