Working Party on History of Chemistry

The Working Party on History of Chemistry aims to bring together and facilitate communication between historically interested chemists/chemistry educators and historians of chemistry from all over Europe and beyond. The WP was founded on 22 April 1977 in Budapest, by Ferenc Szabadváry, and organizes international conferences for the history of chemistry every second year.
