The Future of Chemistry: Catalyzing Innovation for Sustainable Development (49)
The 2023 World Chemistry Leadership Meeting (WCLM) of IUPAC will be held during the World Chemistry Congress (WCC) at The Hague in The Netherlands on 23 August 2023. The theme of the meeting has its roots in a relatively new (2019) IUPAC project—the identification of the Top Ten Emerging Technologies in Chemistry—technologies that are judged to have the highest potential to improve the quality of life, contribute to economic growth, and advance society towards a more sustainable future.
