HeidelbergCement invites researchers, students and citizens to submit biodiversity projects in its quarries around the world.
The aim of this scientific and educational contest is to raise awareness of the organic value of mining sites and share new best practices with the scientific community, NGOs, authorities and our operating units.
The 5th edition of our contest will start in 2020. More information will be published in due time on this website.
