Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. See program details.

5th International Conference on Bioinspired and Biobased Chemistry & Materials

  • This event has passed.

Nature Inspires, Creativity Engineers

-This event is adopting a hybrid format allowing for on-site and virtual participation. With such plan, NICE will continue advancing science amidst the pandemic and benefit of both face-to-face and virtual discussions, while ensuring everyone’s safety.

The aim of this conference is to convene chemists, physicists, biologists, material scientists, and engineers from both academic and industrial institutes to share new developments and techniques in the domain of bio-inspired, bio-based, and bio-sourced chemistry and materials development. The conference will highlight recent advances in engineering and materials science that employ bio-inspired techniques and materials. This conference is of special significance considering the increasing importance of identifying energy efficient, green solutions to materials challenges. There is a significant need to highlight this research and to address the current issues within this field.
