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.

XIII Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry

  • This event has passed.

The 2021 Summer School is being planned both onsite in Venice and online

The Summer School does offer the unique opportunity to bring together a number of experts in the field of Green Chemistry and young researchers. This synergy of competencies is a valuable occasion to promote and facilitate diffusion and transfer of the knowledge in this emerging and evolving field.

• Teach postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers in chemistry and associated disciplines from all over the world, either from academia or industry.
• Indicate Green Chemistry as fundamental tool to approach pollutant reduction at source.
• Give a view of the state-of-the-art on Green Chemistry researches in the last decades.
• Facilitate a profitable and continuous exchange of ideas and information among the students, the instructors and the different stakeholders for the establishment of long-lasting scientific relationships. All these students will be ambassadors of Green Chemistry in their institutions, in their Countries, and to their peers, and so invited to form international networks of scientists.

The Summer School is organized and managed by the Green Sciences for Sustainable Development Foundation (www.gssd-foundation.org), a non-profit Foundation based in Venice, Italy. The Foundation’s website provides access to various lectures, proceedings, and reports of the previous editions of the Summer Schools.

Because of the COVID-19 crisis, we are not able to deliver the Summer School in person in Venice, this will be carried out Online only. In fact, both modalities (Onsite and Online) will be followed because we experienced last July (2020) a real request for students to learn on green sciences. (see Chem Int Jan 2021 for report)
It is expected that in this stimulating Venetian environment students and instructors will find an informal and relaxed atmosphere. This will give young researchers the opportunity to establish new contacts and to exchange information on their researches in chemistry which will consent intimate discussions, questions, a profitable exchange of ideas, and the beginning of new scientific collaborations.
In the past twelve editions, the rigorous selection of the participants contributed to form a class of high cultural level students. This was a real success for the previous editions of SSs. Report on: https://www.gssd-foundation.org/ssgc/programme.php
