The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) &
IUPAC Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development (ICGCSD)
a Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry, 7 - 14 July 2018 -  Palazzo Ducale, Venice, Italy

Applications deadline: 31st March 2018!

I'm pleased to inform you that IUPAC Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development ICGCSD (https://iupac.org/body/041) is organizing a  Post-graduate Summer School on Green Chemistry that will be held from the 7th to 14th of July 2018 in Venice. This Summer School will ideally follow the 10 previous editions held in Venice from 1998 to 2008, but this will be the first one under the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry IUPAC sponsorship (https://iupac.org/).


Green Chemistry is one of the key sciences of a sustainable development on earth and required for reaching the 17 UN-Goals: IUPAC and ICGCSD are fully aware of their responsibility in working in the direction of Sustainable Development through Green Chemistry.


The School will be hosted in the magnificent Palazzo Ducale, the Doge's Palace, in St. Mark's Square, and about 70 post-graduate students/young researchers and 20 teachers coming from all over the world are expected to attend. Scholarships will be offered to young talented chemists especially from developing countries.

The choice of Venice, this extraordinary but delicate architectural masterpiece between land and sea, as Host city for the Summer School has offered the opportunity to highlight the emerging connection of Green Chemistry with cultural heritage restoration and conservation field.  


Main topics will be:

  • Chemistry beyond chlorine
  • New reaction pathways
  • Exploitation of renewable resources
  • For the first time: Green Chemistry for cultural heritage restoration


Applications are now open for postgraduate students and young researchers!


You can find more information about the School at the following website linkhttp://www.unive.it/greenss2018 and please find attached our POSTER.


We would be glad if you could circulate this information among students, colleagues and other academic authorities.


Best regards,
