Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development

Closing ceremony - 15 Dec 2023
The International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD) has been proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly and IUPAC is taking part in the celebrations!
The Year was officially inaugurated with an opening conference 8 July 2022 at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, and will run for a year+ of events and activities. IYBSSD will close at CERN/Geneva in December 2023.

Diversity and Inclusion

Chemistry is all about diversity: each new bond, each additional group makes the whole richer and stronger. IUPAC recognizes that to fulfill its vision, it must strongly commit to embracing and promoting transparency, diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunities for all.

Advancing the Worldwide Role of Chemistry

IUPAC serves the international scientific endeavor in the dual function of a fundamental science and mission-oriented Union. The Union is in a unique position to contribute to the central interdisciplinary chemical sciences.
