1st Commonwealth Chemistry Congress

Dear SACI Members

Come together to promote excellence in the chemical sciences 

1st Commonwealth Chemistry Congress
18–20 May 2021, Online and free to attend

Commonwealth Chemistry’s first major activity will be its inaugural Congress bringing together senior researchers and early career chemists from across the Commonwealth nations to discuss research addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The 1st Commonwealth Chemistry Congress offers a unique opportunity during the difficult times of the pandemic to engage with a Commonwealth network across the breadth of the chemical sciences. The programme includes scientific sessions on the following themes:

  • biodiversity and natural products

  • energy and materials

  • food and agriculture

  • green chemistry and catalysis

  • health and wellbeing

  • water and environmental chemistry

In addition to panel discussions on career pathways and the importance of the Commonwealth’s role in achieving the SDGs, there will be networking opportunities to share and discuss research.
Registration is free for early career chemists. This is a fantastic opportunity to join this special Congress. Places are limited, so register now to attend.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to further your career progression. Join us in May.
