In the wake of the climate emergency, we need to reduce the impact of everyday urban life on resources, from the scale of the individual to an international approach. Both in the Netherlands and Germany, there is an increasing political and societal attention for the transition to a circular economy. A revaluation of material use and the development of new sustainable materials are crucial in this respect. ANCB in collaboration with the Netherlands Embassy in Berlin conceptualised a programme on Dutch and German innovations in material design – considering raw materials, techniques and use – to enable a sustainable and circular economy in the future. The programme supports knowledge exchange and new connections between disciplines and between Dutch and German protagonists.

This Opening Lab Talk aimed to explore a wide range of innovations in material development presented by experts from different backgrounds, while examining how:
