Objective

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 will certainly be a valuable occasion to promote and facilitate diffusion and transfer of knowledge in this emerging and evolving field.

AIMS

• Teach postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers in chemistry and associated disciplines from all over the world, either from academia or industry.
• Exploit Green Chemistry as fundamental tool to approach pollutant reduction at source.
• Give an overview 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 2020 Summer School Edition had great feedback from the students, as provided in the following website: https://www.greenchemistry.school/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Students_reasons_to_attend_the_Summer_School.pdf

 

Description

The top-level and diverse range of topics focusing on Green Chemistry offered for discussion at the Summer School will give the students the chance to enhance and exchange their scientific knowledge and establish important connections with other participants and professors for future joint projects and research activities.
In the past 11 Editions, the strict selection of the participants contributed to form a class of high cultural level students willing to invest their talents and scientific know-how for their future professional careers in a mature and responsible way.
As a result, many of them currently have important responsibilities in their respective Countries and they do acknowledge the contribute of the Summer School to their careers.

This project will provide support for students from less advantaged Countries, including Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Nigeria, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Uzbekistan, Mexico, or Argentina.
