Mission and Activtities

The EuCheMS Division of Physical Chemistry integrates and coordinates its scientific activities with respective national and international activities of its members.

The EuCheMS Division of Physical Chemistry is active in the field of intense scientific exchange on a European scale by organizing biannual EuCheMS Physical Chemistry Conferences. The location of such meetings is expected to rotate among the active members and member societies

Additionally, the EuCheMS Division of Physical Chemistry intends to actively support the scientific program of the biannual EuCheMS Chemistry Congresses by giving significant contributions to inorking and communication among its active members, which is expected to lead to a higher level of coordination and communication resulting in integration of topical national events into the EuCheMS Physical Chemistry Community.

Other important fields of future activity besides being an active member within the EuCheMS community are:

(i) Identification of major challenges in Physical Chemistry and contribution to future funding strategies.

(ii) Organization of research platforms and networks on a European scale in Physical Chemistry.

(iii) Contributions to harmonization of educational issues within Europe and developments of novel educational platforms in Physical Chemistry.
