EuChemS

The European Chemical Society (EuChemS) brings together chemistry related organisations throughout Europe to provide a single voice on key science and policy issues, based on expert scientific knowledge.

EuChemS is a not-for-profit organisation and has 42 member societies which together represent more than 150,000 chemists in academia, industry, government and professional organisations in 32 countries across Europe. EuChemS has several Divisions and Working Groups which cover all areas of chemistry and bring together world class expertise in the underpinning science and development needed for innovation.

KVCV is represented within EuChemS by Roger Dommisse.

 

Events

EuChemS organises high quality European scientific conferences, recognising cutting-edge research meetings in chemical and molecular sciences and interdisciplinary areas.
Through the European Chemistry Congress – a biennial celebration of the achievements and future developments of chemistry – the EuChemS community comes together to create a significant global scientific event.
EuChemS encourages applications for recognition of a wide variety of scientific events applied by the national chemical societies.

 

Divisions and Working Parties

The scientific Divisions and Working Parties enhance networking in their own fields of expertise and promote collaboration with other European and international organisations.The Divisions and Working Parties organise high quality scientific conferences in chemical and molecular sciences and interdisciplinary areas.

Each member organisation of EuChemS can appoint up to two delegates to each Division or Working Party. Appointed delegates should be leading researchers in the field of activity of the Division and/or Working Party in national or European bodies in the field. It is recommended that the appointment is for three years, extendible at least once.

Within the framework of the Division or Working Party the duties of delegates shall include:

  • Developing and contributing to the Division’s or Working Party’s scientific activities;
  • Seeking information from, and reporting back to, the EuChemS member organisation;
  • Participating in the annual meeting of the Division or Working Party and other activities;
  • Seeking opportunities to promote the activities of the Division or Working Party in their own country, through meetings and publications, using electronic means of communication where possible.
