The project CLOCKS is initiated as a necessary response to the worldly challenges provoked by resource depletion, pollution, climate changes

An initiative to promote a more rational use of resources
both in terms of raw materials as well as of energy

In order to face these problems in the most appropriate way, a necessary shift from the linear to circular economy has to be performed.

This requires a holistic perspective, intersectional approach and interdisciplinarity of knowledge.
Following this aims a synergic knowledge-triangle integration (connecting industry, research/ innovation and education) is being established.
