From the 23rd to the 26th of March, we participated in the Spring Symposium 2022 in Hannover. Themed "Communicating the Future", we used the symposium not only to meet each other in person for the first time but also to discuss opportunities for more sustainable chemistry with many young chemists and industry representatives. Hannah Kortman presented the Teams work at the Regionalforen Speakers' Meeting. In addition, we had the opportunity to provide participants with insights into entrepreneurship in a workshop on sustainable start-ups organized in cooperation with the JCF Team Start-Up. During the poster session of the symposium, we presented our projects and exchanged new ideas and suggestions with participants. We would like to thank the planning committee, the JCFs Hannover and Göttingen as well as all sponsors and volunteers for organizing a fantastic symposium.
