Today and tomorrow, the 5th Green & Sustainable Chemistry Conference is taking place online. It features a high-level and inspiring programme exploring the latest research and opening-up discussion on the role of chemistry in contributing to achieving the SDGs. Invited talks are joined by the finalists of the Green and Sustainable Chemistry Challenge 2020, contributed talks and ePosters.

Leitat is presenting a poster about Liberate to disclose preliminary results of the project. Click here to download the poster in pdf or see below.

Other conferences in this field are focused mainly on the synthesis and technical aspects of green chemistry. To contribute in a long-term, viable and globally applicable manner to the Sustainable Development Goals, a much broader approach and knowledge exchange is necessary. The goal of the conference is therefore to bring together international researchers from academia and industry, from authorities and other institutions, from all parts of the worlds, to communicate and share the latest developments across the broad and diverse fields of green and sustainable chemistry.
