School onChirality: from biology to pharmaceuticals and nanomaterials”

2024, 28th July – 3rd August

Hotel Giardino sul mare, Aeolian Islands, Lipari, Italy

Dear Friends,

It is our great pleasure announce the first edition of School on “Chirality: from biology to pharmaceuticals and nanomaterials”, which will be held in the magnificent scenario of Lipari, in the Aeolian Islands from 28 July to 3 August 2024.

The School will be dedicated to the introduction (the origin of molecular and supramolecular chirality and their experimental determination) and in-depth analysis of both theoretical and experimental topics and is dedicated to both simple listeners and doctoral students. Therefore, the School plays the twofold role of congress and school: a place of meeting and discussion between different generations of researchers. The event will be characterized by a very informal and relaxing atmosphere with lessons in the morning and terrace/poolside discussions in the afternoon, plus two social tours to the Aeolian Islands (one tour includes social dinner + dancing).

The headquarters of the School will be the Hotel Giardino sul mare (

Early registration applications can be submitted up to April 30th, 2024. Late registrations will be accepted up to June 21st, 2024.

2023, 9th – 11th May

AstraZeneca, Gothenburg, Sweden

The inaugural ELRIG meeting on Therapeutic OLIGOs combined with the 8th European Chemical Biology Symposium (ECBS) will be held on May 9-11 at the beautiful AstraZeneca R&D site in Gothenburg. This interactive 3-day event will host leading scientists from academia, industry and the vendor community to discuss recent advancements in the discovery of therapeutic OLIGOs and in the Chemical Biology research field in Europe and internationally. The ECBS part of the meeting is co-organized by EU-OPENSCREEN and the EuChemS Division of Chemistry in Life Sciences, and includes contributions from key academic chemical biology research groups in Europe. Our ambition is to create an open access meeting and an inspiring environment for networking between biologists and chemists to fuel cross-fertilisation between research areas.
