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.

ONLINE – Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry

  • This event has passed.

The Summer School will go ONLINE!

As a result of the ongoing outbreak of Coronavirus and the limitations on travelers mobility, the Summer School will be held online on 6th-10th July 2020. The conditions of the Summer School remain unchanged. The students will have the opportunity to expose their research and work during the virtual Summer School poster session. The best posters will be rewarded by the sponsors at the online awarding ceremony and all participants will receive a certificate of attendance. The School will provide the opportunity of publishing the students’ poster abstracts on the Summer School final proceedings.  See UPDATE provided by the organizers (7 Apr 2020).

Sustainable Development through Green Chemistry

The 2020 Summer school will follow-up on the outcomes of the Symposium “Chemistry addressing UN-17 sustainable development goals” held during the IUPAC Congress in July 2019.

Main topics will be:

  • Exploitation of renewable resources
  • New Reaction pathways
  • Energy saving
  • Food security
  • Green Chemistry for cultural heritage
