The IUPAC Company Associates (CA) programme is your company’s direct link to IUPAC. As an industry partner, you can contribute to IUPAC’s mission to create the common language of chemistry. Industry input is essential to IUPAC to enable the digitalisation of chemistry at scale with consistent standards.

Therefore, join us to create an open, FAIR and industry-wide language for chemistry!
