Who is the LCM 2021 aimed at?
„LCM is an ideal platform for exchanging thoughts, ideas, methods, results and much more on sustainability aspects. Bringing people together from different disciplines and with different backgrounds is a catalyst in creating new ideas and exploring new topics in the field of sustainability. From the perspective of an industry partner, the LCM conference creates value in that way that interactions, discussions and learning experiences are closely linked with each other “(Dr. Peter Saling, Director Sustainability Methods BASF SE).
