Last year was indeed very special, we have all experienced it. But, even though many would prefer to forget that 2020 happened, for the European Chemical Society last year was of great importance – we celebrated our 50th birthday! Activities related to our anniversary celebration, as well as many other projects and achievements of EuChemS and its community, are represented in the EuChemS Year Book 2020, which is now available online. As every year, it represents a unique annual report designed to highlight major advancements of our Chemistry society.
The Year Book reflects on the initiatives and actions in the area of science policy, it looks back to various meetings and webinars, and it considers science communication aspects. It also offers an insightful overview of EuChemS Professional Networks and their work. Furthermore, the winners of several EuChemS awards are presented in it, along with the numerous activities and publications inspired by the 50th anniversary celebration of EuChemS, since its foundation in 1970 in Prague.
Therefore, from the point of view of EuChemS, 2020 is definitely a year to remember!
