The School

Sustainable Development through Green Chemistry

General information

The Summer School on Green Chemistry will be held  from 2nd to 7th July 2023.

The official language of the Conference is English.

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 2022 edition to which the 2023 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 in the next months.

After the end of the Green Chemistry Postgraduate Summer School 2022, the Green Sciences for Sustainable Development Foundation asked students to give their feedback on the School.

An article about the 2022 Edition is available on Chemistry International October-December 2022 page 43-48  https://iupac.org/etoc-chemistry-international-oct-dec-2022/
