Chairman’s message

Dear Colleagues,

With a great pleasure I would like to welcome you to the next 16th Green Chemistry Postgraduate Summer School (GCSS 2024).
This 2024 Edition of the Summer School is the first edition that will be not chaired by prof. Pietro Tundo who passed away last year and who was the funder this Green Chemistry Postgraduate Summer School.
I have known Pietro for a long time as he was my PhD supervisor at Turin University where now my research group is located. His long career as Professor has left a significant imprint on several generations of students and scientists around the world, who have had the honor of knowing him and working with him.
In this view, together with the board of the Green Science for Sustainable Development Foundation we have decided to continue his legacy in organizing this highly appreciated international summer school.

The GCSS 2024 will encompass the following main topics:

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

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, selected outstanding postgraduate students from developing countries will be awarded with a scholarship to attend the Summer School virtually. The scholarship will include a fee waiver either for the on-site or on-line participation.

In this Summer School, postgraduate students will also have the opportunity to present their research during either Virtual and on-person Poster Session of the Summer School. The best three 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 students 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 in Venice.

Prof. Francesco Trotta
Chairman, President of the Green Sciences for Sustainable Development Foundation

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.
