Celebrations and commemorations at the EuChemS Chemistry Congress 2018

At the 7th EuChemS Chemistry Congress, we will have the pleasure of celebrating and commemorating the 100th, 125th, and 150th anniversaries of nine EuChemS member societies that will fall or fell in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

In 2019, the Estonian Chemical Society, the Finnish Chemical Society, the Polish Chemical Society and the Romanian Chemical Society (all founded in 1919) will be celebrating their 100th anniversaries. The German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry (founded in 1894) will celebrate its 125th anniversary. In 2018, the Norwegian Chemical Society (founded in 1893) will be celebrating its 125th anniversary, and the Mendeleev Russian Chemical Society and the Swedish Chemical Society in Lund (both founded in 1868) will celebrate their 150th anniversaries. And finally, the GDCh (founded in 1867) commemorated its 150th anniversary in a splendid ceremony in Berlin in 2017. We look very much forward to celebrating all of these anniversaries, as well as the 100th anniversary of IUPAC in 2019 during the welcome reception of the Congress.
