From 28 – 30 August 2019, chemists, researchers and industry representatives met in the Italian town of Salerno for a breakthrough-type international conference: a creative showcase conference which would explore the interactions between research, industry and society within the field of Chemistry. CIS 2019 aimed to differentiate itself from conventional scientific conferences, and undertook to encourage discussion on various interactions between all three sectors, and ultimately the process from which an idea can become an innovation within broader topics such as Energy, Health, Sustainability and Security.
EuChemS President Pilar Goya was invited to speak and welcome participants, and took the opportunity to present some of EuChemS’s latest activities and initiatives and how it too is taking part in such debates at a pan-European level.
The conference was organised by the Italian Chemical Society in collaboration with European Chemical Society (EuChemS), Federchimica (the Italian Federation of the chemical industry), Farmindustria (Italian Association of pharmaceutical companies) and the support of Italian Interuniversity Consortium of Materials Science and Technology (INSTM) and Italian Association of Science & Technology of Macromolecules (AIM).
