The aim of the symposium, held on 11th to 12th of June, 2015 at TUM (Munich, Germany) was to bring together scientists and students from UQ and TUM, who are engaged in identifying solutions to significant global challenges such as sustainable production of food, chemicals, materials and energy in the light of dwindling resources. The symposium served as a platform to strengthen an extensive network of cooperations in the field of engineering, chemistry, biotechnology and agriculture for a sustainable bioeconomy.

Furthermore, the opportunity was used by the presidents of both universities – Prof. Wolfgang Herrmann (TUM) and Prof. Peter Hoj (UQ) – to reaffirm the close cooperation by signing a corresponding cooperation contract.

The event program is available online.
