EuChemS participation in the ECC8

The 8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress is almost about to begin. As a key participant in the congress, the European Chemical Society has numerous exciting activities scheduled.

The two key sessions of EuChemS will focus on chemistry’s role in reducing pollution and the unique cultural and policy characteristics of science. The former, titled “Chemists’ contributions to the global approach for tackling pollution” will be a panel discussion on chemistry’s role in 5th UN Environment Assembly resolutions. Floris Rutjes and Nineta Hrastelj of EuChemS, Camilla Alexander-White and Tom Welton from the Royal Society of Chemistry, Carla Seidel from the German Chemical Society (GDCh) and Angela Wilson from the American Chemical Society (ACS) will be present. During the latter, visitors will be able to take a look at science from a different perspective: EuChemS Science Communication and Policy officer Marton Kottmayer and Public Affairs Consultant Bruno Vilela will hold interactive talks about the unique role of science in a cultural and political context. Apart from EuChemS sessions, numerous events will also be held by the European Young Chemists’ Network.

Last, but not least, don’t miss the opportunity to meet the EuChemS Secretariat by visiting the EuChemS booth in the main hall. In our booth, you can learn more about EuChemS, meet our president, as well as participate in numerous brief, exciting activities such as quizzes and video demonstrations.

We’re looking forward to meeting you in Lisbon!
