The theme of the conference, “Electrochemistry: Linking Resources to Sustainable Development”, speaks to the 17 goals of the new UN sustainable development goals (SDG 2030) and the first of the seven African Aspirations of Agenda 2063 of African Union (AU) which is “A Prosperous Africa, based on inclusive growth and sustainable development”.
In its 70 years’ history, this is the first time ISE Annual Meeting will be held in Africa. The conference is part of the efforts by the ISE to reach out to all the countries of the world, especially the resource-limited ones where the education in the subject (Electrochemistry) is still being developed.
The scientific program, comprising 21 symposia as well as tutorials and electrochemistry masterclasses, attest to the multi-disciplinarity of Electrochemistry and the contribution the conference promises to make toward the international advancement of Chemistry.
