The PhosAgro/UNESCO/IUPAC Partnership in Green Chemistry for Life aims to generate and apply new scientific knowledge in green chemistry through the promotion of the activity in this area. It is also to reinforce the research capacities of the participating institutes and cooperation between them, and to increase awareness of policy and decision-makers in governments, science and industry, and the public at large, of the opportunities offered by advances in green chemistry.
The grants are intended to harness talents of young scientists worldwide for promoting the contribution of green chemistry for protection of the environment and human health, creation of new environmentally-sound science-based technologies, and identification of novel vistas for energy savings and use of natural resources.
The partnership offer research grants of up to US$30,000 to scientists aged 39 and under with an innovative research project that respects the 12 principles of green chemistry, to help them implement their project. In addition to seeking to harness talents of young scientists for the advancement of green chemistry and the use of its fruits, the Project sets out to raise awareness among decision- and policy-makers, industrialists and the public at large of the vast opportunities green chemistry offers to meet pressing societal needs.
Young scientists (aged 39 and under) are invited to submit their applications for PhosAgro/UNESCO/IUPAC grants in green chemistry
