Green Chemistry Summer School

Green Chemistry Postgraduate Summer School 
4th-10th July 2020, Venice (Italy)

Sustainable Development through Green Chemistry

Dear Colleagues,

It is with a great pleasure that I welcome you for the next Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry which will take place from 4th to 10th July 2020 in Venice.
Maybe you already know about the previous remarkable 11 editions of Summer Schools, in particular last one which took place in Palazzo Ducale in St. Mark’s Square in Venice.
We want now to tune the next Summer School to the good outcomes of the Symposium “Chemistry addressing UN-17 sustainable development goals” (Paris, IUPAC General Assembly and Congress, 8th July 2019 https://www.iupac2019.org/sympo-8-5) by inviting:

  • outstanding teachers
  • major chemical industries
  • top level students

To attend the school some postgraduate students coming from developing countries will be awarded with a scholarship of € 600 each.
Last time, 35 grants were possible thanks to the generous participations of the sponsors; we hope in this edition to have the same chance.
Main topics will be:

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

Students will have the opportunity to expose their research and work at the Summer School Poster Session and the best posters will be rewarded by the Sponsors at the awarding ceremony.
The Summer School will be the occasion for you to exchange ideas and make friendship with colleagues at an international level, and we will do our utmost to ensure that these links and connections will be permanent!
I invite all participants to actively participate with their suggestions and ideas during the Summer School with hope that closer connections are established also for the future.
