Chairman’s message

Dear Colleagues,

With a great pleasure I would like to welcome you to the next 15th Green Chemistry Postgraduate Summer School on 2023 (GCSS 2023).

This 2023 Edition of the Summer School follows the previous one held online and on-site as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.

You may already know about previous 14th successful editions of the Summer School, in particular the one took place in Palazzo Ducale in St. Mark’s Square in Venice.

Main topics will be:

  • Benign synthesis routes
  • Green catalysis
  • Alternative solvents
  • Renewable and green raw materials
  • Green chemistry for energy
  • Climate change
  • Clean processes
  • Green Chemistry education

We would like to tune this Summer School to the successful outcomes of the previous editions by inviting:
outstanding teachers | major chemical industries | top level students

Thanks to the generous participations of our sponsors, outstanding postgraduate students from developing countries will be awarded with a scholarship of 65 Euro (each) to attend the Summer School virtually.


In this Summer School, postgraduate students will also have an immense opportunity to demonstrate their research works during either Virtual and on-person Poster Session of the Summer School. The best posters will be selected and awarded by our sponsors during an award ceremony.

The Summer School will provide the best possible platform for postgraduate students from different countries to interact with well-known scientists/educators in the field of Green Chemistry, to exchange ideas with their peers, to create a research network, and to develop a friendship with attendants at an international level.


I invite all participants to actively participate with their suggestions and ideas during the Summer School with the hope that closer connections are established also for the future.

We look forward to seeing you all online or in-person.

Sustainable Development through Green Chemistry

Illustration with Venice Bridge

Green Chemistry might be seen as the field in Chemistry which directly responds to the appeal of humankind. Green Chemistry is a future-oriented approach to reconcile and foster the research in the chemical sciences with society and its needs. So, we necessitate as many as possible new and surprising proposals coming from pure and applied research, in order to have the possibility to select the best solution.
