The online Summer School has started
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.

Sustainable Development through Green Chemistry
It is with a great pleasure that I welcome you for the next Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry.
As a result of the crisis caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) ongoing outbreak and the limitations on travelers mobility, the School will be held online.
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 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 scolarship of € 60 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 during the virtual Summer School Poster Session and the best posters will be rewarded by the Sponsors at the online awarding ceremony. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
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 and that you will be able to meet in person as soon as the current crisis will be over!
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.
