Highlights


Expo 2015 - The Chemist towards Europe and the World

EXPO 2015 will take place in Milan, Italy. The main theme will be 'Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life'. EuCheMS and the Consiglio Nazionale dei Chimici believe that EXPO 2015 will be an amazing opportunity to raise awareness to the importance of chemical sciences in society. It will also provide an important forum of exchange of ideas between scientists, young researchers and the general public.

With these objectives in mind, a series of EuCheMS-CNC talks, The Chemist towards Europe and the World, will take place during the Expo2015:
