Prestigious EuChemS awardees will talk at the 8thEuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC8) late this August in Lisbon. Awardees of the European Gold Medal Dame Carol Robinson (2022 awardee) and Michele Parrinello (2020 awardee) will hold plenary speeches during the opening ceremony of the congress. You will also be able to listen to the speeches of the recipients of the EuChemS Lecture Awards, and last, but not least, EuChemS Service Awards winners will receive their honours at the event as well.
Alongside the award ceremonies, EuChemS is organising thematic sessions. On 30 August, a panel of high-profile participants from the Royal Chemistry Society, American Chemistry Society, GDCh, and EuChemS will discuss the contributions of chemistry to the Sustainable Development Goals during the discussion titled “Chemists’ contributions to the global approach for tackling pollution”. Later that day you will also be able to hear about chemistry – and natural sciences in general – from a different perspective: the following EuChemS session will be about the unique culture of the scientific community, and the effect this has on public policy.
In addition to events and ceremonies, you will be able to approach EuChemS representatives in the exhibition hall during the entire congress. In the EuChemS expo booth, you can learn about ongoing projects and initiatives. Keep an eye on updates about the stand in the next month’s Brussels News Update, as well as on the ECC8 website.
The ECC8 will be held from 28 August to 1 September, 2022 and we are very much looking forward to meeting you there.
