As the beginning of the 8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC8) draws closer, so do the activities of the European Chemical Society at ECC8. To help those who are interested in them, we have collected all information on our awards and sessions on our website – you can take a look here.
At the opening ceremony of the ECC8 on 28 September, European Chemistry Gold Medal recipients Dame Carol Robinson and Michelle Parrinello will hold plenary talks after accepting their awards as well as 2020 and 2021 Lecture Awardees Victor Mougel and Sílvia Osuna. The recipients of the last 3 years’ EuChemS Awards for Service will also receive their honours on 1 September.
EuChemS will also host two science-policy sessions on 30 August. The panel discussion titled ‘Chemists’ contributions to the global approach for tackling pollution’ will centre around how chemistry can help the 5th UN Environment Assembly’s 14 resolutions aiming to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and will feature prestigious international panellists from major chemistry societies. The session ‘Culture and Policy in Science’ aims to demonstrate how natural sciences can be seen through the perspective of social and political sciences, and how understanding such a perspective can be useful for the scientific community.
Last, but not least, we are looking forward to welcoming you at the EuChemS expo booth – for more info on the booth, keep an eye on the ‘EuChemS at the ECC8’ page. We are very much looking forward to meeting you there.
