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.

Alessandro Volta’s heritage: the past and the future of electrochemistry

  • This event has passed.

Within the framework of the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD), the Italian National Commission for IUPAC is organizing an one-day hybrid conference focused on electrochemistry and mainly directed to students and civic society in Italy. The occasion will be designed to drive the public in an ideal trip from the roots of electrochemistry, opened by the great discovery of the Italian scientist Alessandro Volta, to the present and future of this field of chemistry, crucial to address the energy transition and climate change mitigation. The event will be organized in Como, birthplace of Alessandro Volta, in a territory sensitive and active in innovation, internationalization, and sustainable growth.
