The Council of the European Chemistry Thematic Network Association (ECTN) met in Rome in the first week of December. N. Hrastelj, EuChemS Secretary General, attended the meeting in her role as advisor.
EuChemS and ECTN has a successful long lasting collaboration on overlapping topics of common interest in the field of chemistry education and related topics. One such example are joint surveys on employability of chemists in Europe; two were executed by now, while the third one (ESEC3) is scheduled for spring next year. Please keep an eye on further announcements on launching the survey.
