Two leather scientists under the age of 35 will receive grants for research projects in the fields of leather research and sustainability as part of the 2022 IULTCS programme.

2022 will be the eighth year of the grant and, in addition to sustainability/environment, the IULTCS will provide a €1,500 single sum grant to a basic leather research project.

Leather Naturally Chairperson Egbert Dikkers said: “Leather Naturally is proud to continue sponsoring the Dr Mike Redwood Sustainability/Environment grant with the monetary sum of €1,000 sponsorship.

“With Leather Naturally focusing on providing education to designers, brands and consumers, it was a logical step to sponsor this award, named in honour of our founder Dr Mike Redwood.”

Application submissions for the 2022 YLSG programme open on October 1 and Dr Luis Zugno, President of IULTCS, asks young research talents of the industry to file innovative and thought-provoking project ideas before the November 30 deadline.

Entry details can be found on the IULTCS website.
