The year couldn’t have started better! YourFormula is an official partner of the  3rd International Symposium on Green Chemistry- ISGC 2015 – that will be held from May 3rd to the 7th 2015 in La Rochelle, France.

The key objective of this third edition of ISGC is to provide an environment that facilitates widespread interdisciplinary communication. To this end, ISGC-2015 should offer to public and private scientists an ideal platform for sharing fundamental knowledge with industrial research and development.

The last edition of the event in 2013 was a real success, with more than 550 participants (including 21% from industry) from 37 different countries. Through 150 conferences/oral communications and 330 posters, ISGC-2 provided a large focus on the past, future and challenges of Green Chemistry and received fantastic media coverage.

This year’s edition will feature  renowned speakers like Prof John Warner from Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry in the USA, or Prof Martyn Poliakoff from the University of Nottingham in the UK.  It is expected  to attract some 700 attendees. This year the ISGC programme  aims at widening the scope of the symposium to other fields of green chemistry. In particular, ISGC-2015 will cover nine general topics related to:

9 topics ISGC

Each topic will be introduced by a plenary lecture delivered by an eminent scientist of the field. Apart from the lectures, ISGC-2015 will be organized around different parallel sessions (including invited keynotes and oral communications), posters, a round table and an exhibition area.

Also  during ISGC 2015, the organising committee with the expertise of the scientific committee will be presenting  ISGC awards in three  fields:

  • A “Green Chemistry Award” provided by the International Committee of ISGC.
  • A “Young Researcher Award” (< 35 years) provided by the Global network of Green Chemistry Centres headed by Prof. James Clark.
  • “Poster Awards” provided by the RSC Green Chemistry journal.
