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:

  • Exploitation of renewable resources
  • New reaction pathways
  • Energy saving
  • Food safety
  • Green Chemistry for cultural heritage
  • Climate Change damages mitigation
