Call for IUPAC and ICGCSD Post-graduate Summer School on Green Chemistry

7-14 July 2018, Palazzo Ducale - Venice, Italy

IUPAC Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development ICGCSD is organizing a Post-graduate Summer School on Green Chemistry that will be held from the 7th to 14th of July 2018 in Venice.

Applications are now open!
You can find more information about the School at the following Website link

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.

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 prestigious Palazzo Ducale, the Doge’s Palace, in St. Mark’s Square thanks to the collaboration with the the Superintendence of Archeology, Fine Arts and Landscape for the City of Venice and Lagoon.
The second venue is the Cultural Centre Don Orione Artigianelli, a 6th Century monastery in the centre of Venice.

About 80 post-graduate students 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
  • Green Chemistry for cultural heritage restoration

The European Union has declared 2018 as the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
Throughout 2018, celebrations of diverse cultural heritage across Europe will take place at EU, national, regional and local level. The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space. 

The IUPAC Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry has received the sponsorship and the official label of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.

IUPAC The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry

he International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) serves to advance the worldwide aspects of the chemical sciences and to contribute to the application of chemistry in the service of Humankind. As a scientific, international, non-governmental and objective body, IUPAC can address many global issues involving the chemical sciences. IUPAC is recognized as the world authority on chemical nomenclature, terminology, standardized methods for measurement, atomic weights and many other critically evaluated data. IUPAC is an association of bodies, National Adhering Organizations, which represent the chemists of different member countries. The work of IUPAC is done almost entirely by approximately 1400 volunteer scientists from many countries who serve on committees, subcommittees, and task groups. IUPAC's scientific work is conducted largely under a formal project system, in which proposals from chemists worldwide are peer-reviewed and, if meritorious, are approved and supported.
