CAMPUSHABITAT5U has already a collaboration agreement with the MAITE Foundation for the development, implementation and improvement of a sustainable laboratory model, through the activities of the Spanish Network for Sustainable Laboratories (LAB’s). As part of the agreement and this call CAMPUSHABITAT5U has asked for advise to MAITE Foundation to conduct an assessment of the degree of sustainability of some laboratories and research centers on campus, a proposal for actions to improve their sustainability and a sustainable management plan. This action consolidates CAMPUSHABITAT5U aggregations as a contributing member of the Red LAB’S.

This aggregation is important for the internationalization of the campus because, under the referred agreement, CAMPUSHABITAT5U participates in the working groups of the international platforms on sustainable laboratories with whom MAITE Foundation has signed collaboration agreements.

The planned actions affect the 10 laboratories located in the buildings of the Botanical Garden of the University of Valencia.
