The School

Sustainable Development through Green Chemistry

General information

The Summer School on Green Chemistry will be held  from 4th to 10th July 2021.
The official language of the Conference is English.
The School consists of 5 lecture days. The aim of the School is to disseminate good, advanced and basic chemical sciences and scientific know-how for students’ future professional careers. Please visit the webpage about the programme of the previous 2020 edition to which the 2021 event will be inspired to.

The School is open to postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers from all over the world.
It will consist of 5 lecture days. The official schedule will be established taking into consideration the different time zones of the participants’ countries of origin.

After the end of the Green Chemistry Postgraduate Summer School 2020, the Green
Sciences for Sustainable Development Foundation asked students to give their
feedback on the School. Some replies is here: https://www.gssd-foundation.org/summerschool/Students’%20feedback.pdf

Scientific information

Lectures will be at the level of state-of-the-art research contributions in the Green Chemistry field, but they will also cover background material. Also according to the students’ abstracts received, the Summer School main topics are:

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