Brussels News Update - March 2020

Hello and welcome to the March edition of the Brussels News Updates, the monthly EuChemS newsletter keeping you up to date on the latest chemistry related science-policy issues, news and upcoming events and awards.

The main action for EuChemS this month is the 3rd European Employability Survey (ESEC3). All chemists and chemical engineers are kindly invited and strongly encouraged to answer the survey before 31 March. Their feedback is key for designing better future landscape for chemists in Europe when it comes to employability, skills, education and overall quality of life of citizens in Europe. Furthermore, EuChemS is preparing to answer the European Climate Pact consultation of the European Commission and we are getting ready for our coming events, such as celebrating EuChemS 50th anniversary and the 8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC8).
