2019 will be celebrated as the International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT2019), as announced by the United Nations, and EuChemS, one of 5 supporters of the IUPAC lead initiative, will be at the forefront in promoting this significant moment. Through activities, events, worldwide initiatives and more, we hope to see celebrations play an important role in promoting chemistry and science globally.
We now have a dedicated website section for the IYPT2019 where you can find all the information you need, our activities, events organised by our Member Societies and Professional Networks, and also on how to get involved! If you are one of our Members or Professional Networks, or an organisation based in Europe, and have an event linked to the IYPT2019, fill out this form and we will add your event to our dedicated calendar and share it across our networks! Not based in Europe? We strongly encourage you to contact IUPAC directly, here.
How to get involved? IUPAC has set the stage for a Global Women’s Breakfast as well as a Periodic Table of Younger Chemists running until end of July 2019. Keep an eye on our website as we will be continuously updating it with the latest ways for you to join in the celebrations.
