Hello and welcome to the September edition of 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. With the summer holidays now behind us, we can take stock of what lies ahead, including potential transformations at the EU level with the appointment of a new Commissioner for Research and Innovation, updates on the Horizon Europe framework programme, the recent call for nominations for three major EuChemS awards, and the publication of ‘Women in their Element’, a book which delves into the stories of women who shaped the Periodic Table.
