EuChemS Congresses

The EuChemS Chemistry Congresses (ECC) are the most prominent events for the European chemistry community. They constitute a joint endeavour of the national chemical society and the EuChemS Professional Networks. Chemists from all parts of Europe come together to present and discuss the latest achievements in cutting edge chemical sciences. There is no other occasion where chemists from different countries, different areas of chemistry and different professional backgrounds can converge in one place. The ECC are unique fora to foster transnational dialogue and collaboration, to encourage the dialogue between the different branches of chemistry, to bring academia, industry and decision-makers together and to emphasize the impact of chemistry and chemical research on our society. Special attention is given to all activities which help promote the careers of young scientists. A high level Scientific Committee ensures the highest possible quality of the scientific contributions with a regionally and thematically balanced program of exciting cutting edge chemistry.
