EuChemS calls on Ursula von der Leyen, European Commission President-Elect to reconsider Commissioner job title

On 9 September, Ursula von der Leyen, President-Elect of the European Commission announced the names of her team of Commissioners, their portfolios and job titles. The nominations will need to be approved by the European Parliament in the coming weeks.

EuChemS has urged in an open letter to von der Leyen, that the European Commission should revise the title for Commissioner Mariya Gabriel to ‘’Education, Research, Innovation and Youth’’, rather than the proposed ‘Innovation and Youth’ which fails to showcase the dedication of the European Union to education, research and science.
