Meeting SDG 9 requires that by 2030, infrastructure and industry should be substantially more sustainable and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes should be achieved. In this workshop, we will explore a variety of examples of how we can improve industry and technology related services in a sustainable manner. We review the core principles of sustainable development and challenges to their implementation in the chemical industry and we will discuss the usefulness of smart sensor technology reducing the stress inflicted on our natural environment. Also, we will also learn about fiber optics and its potential to improve industrial and technology-based processes. We wish to develop ideas of how to make use of modern technology-based approaches for a future development in the Iraqi economy without compromising the needs of future Iraqi generations. In our four-day workshop, we invite you to learn about and discuss the issues described above and more, develop ideas with us which will then be presented and discussed on the final conference day. The workshop is open for students of all disciplines and especially relevant for students of natural sciences (physics, chemistry, biology), economics, environmental sciences, engineering, computer science/IT and related disciplines.
