Following the success of the future platform at IFAT 2018, the registration phase for 2020 commences now. As a university, take the opportunity to present your research projects to a wider public—in discussions with start-ups, companies and politicians.


Researchers and start-ups use the 1,000 square meters to present the path into the future. Renowned universities, promising research projects and smart solutions encounter forward-thinking entrepreneurs and young talents—for science, politics and that entrepreneurial spirit to shape the future in a visionary way.

This is how universities benefit from

  • Scientific network! As a university, benefit from the most relevant meeting point of the environmental technology industry and establish a sustainable network.
  • Science for everyone! IFAT pools the entire environmental technology value chain in one spot: suppliers and manufacturers, customers from the industry and the public sectors, associations and politics. Present your findings in the right place.
  • Worldwide! Science knows no boundaries. Take advantage of the international discourse and IFAT’s visitors and exhibitors from all over the world.
  • Focus on your research projects! Use the scientific platform to give your research projects the attention they deserve.
  • Optimum added value! The cost-effective “all-inclusive” turnkey packages guarantee efficient access to the world's leading trade fair for environmental technologies.
