EuChemS Historical Landmarks Award 2020 (special award for the 50th anniversary of EuChemS’ foundation)

In 2020, on the 50th Anniversary of EuChemS, the University of Chemistry and Technology (UCT), Prague – where the predecessor to EuChemS was founded – was designated to be a EuChemS Historical Landmark. On July 3, 1970, the Federation of European Chemical Societies (FECS) held its first meeting in Prague, at the University of Chemistry and Technology. FECS, which is now EuChemS, started out with less than twenty members, from both sides of the iron curtain, to put scientific cooperation at the forefront, despite the political differences in the bipolar world. Since then, the organisation, now known as the European Chemical Society (EuChemS) kept expanding both in size and in range of activities.
