The STOA panel is tasked with aiding policymaking by independently assessing new technologies. The European Chemical Society (EuChemS) collaborated with STOA on multiple occasions. In 2011, EuChemS, Cefic and STOA co-organised the workshop “Chemistry for a better life”, and in 2016 EuChemS, EFMC and STOA jointly organized a working breakfast about Antimicrobial Resistance.
