2014 EuChemS General Assembly
Following EuChemS tradition and openness to society, representatives of EuChemS Member Societies, Divisions and Working Parties and distinguished guests participated in the EuChemS General Assembly.
Two central moments during this year´s General Assembly were the “European Research in Chemistry”, which linked research and policy related issues, and the “EuChemS Strategy” session, which discussed what is next for EuChemS.
This General Assembly also marked the transition of the Presidency from Prof. Ulrich Schubert to Prof. David Cole-Hamilton.
EuChemS would like to thank to the General Assembly host, the Polish Chemical Society. The next General Assembly will take place in Vienna in September 2015.
