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.

POSTPONED !! European Conference on Research in Chemical Education (ECRICE 2020)

  • This event has passed.

April 21 update ! In view of the COVID19 situation worldwide, it was decided to postpone the ECRICE2020 meeting. The situation is constantly evolving and no predictions can be made at this point regarding travel bans/restrictions that will be in place in July. The organizers are presently in the process of rescheduling the conference, which will be held on July 11-13 2022. More details will be updated on the conference website.

  • To publish the book of abstracts that were submitted to the 2020 meeting
  • To provide the possibility (for all accepted papers) to send a short video of the lecture – that will be linked to the relevant abstract.

Excellence and Innovation in Chemistry Teaching and Learning

Research in Chemistry education advances our understanding of how students learn chemistry and what can enhance chemistry learning and teaching. It can gain from collaboration between scientists from different countries in examining different learning environments and new ways in which technological societal, and economic issues. As researchers, we look for elements that promote students’ motivation to study chemistry, and we constantly develop ways to prepare chemistry teachers and support their continuous development during their careers.

The European Conference on Research in Chemistry Education is aiming at improving science education all over the world.  It is significant at present time, due to the fact that there is a decline in students in high school who choose to major in chemistry, and as a result – a shortage of chemistry students at the universities. Researchers from all over the world are invited.

The theme of ECRICE 2020 –Excellence and Innovation in Chemistry Teaching and Learning– reflects the innovative nature of the field of chemistry teaching and learning, as well as our constant striving for excellence. Yet, we remind ourselves a quote of Marie Curie “Have no fear of perfection; you’ll never reach it.”
