Summer Schools

The International Summer Schools on Green Chemistry

Pietro Tundo established and directed ten International Summer Schools on Green Chemistry (first edition held in 1998, tenth edition in 2008) with the Italian National Interuniversity Consortium “Chemistry for the Environment” (INCA).
The events were sponsored by the EU, UNESCO and NATO.
Over the ten editions, almost 600 students attended the schools and many of them now hold important positions in their countries.


The IUPAC Postgraduate Summer Schools on Green Chemistry

Pietro Tundo and ICGCSD proposed to IUPAC to start again the Green Chemistry Summer School Series with the new title Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry (Project N° 2017-006-2-041). The series of events will be managed by ICGCSD under IUPAC umbrella on an annual basis to be held each time in a different country all over the world.
GreeNovator supports the Summer School on Green Chemistry.
The first edition of this new series will start in Venice from 7 to 14 July 2018, partly hosted in the prestigious Palazzo Ducale, thanks to the collaboration with the Superintendence of Archeology, Fine Arts and Landscape for the City of Venice and Lagoon.


Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry, Venice, 7-14 July 2018

This event will provide the participants with an understanding of the latest developments of the concepts and management of green and sustainable chemistry. 80 postgraduate students and young researchers and 20 teachers are expected to attend the School. Scholarships will be provided to students coming from less-advantaged countries.
Main topics will be:
  • Chemistry beyond chlorine
  • New reaction pathways
  • Exploitation of renewable resources
  • Green Chemistry for cultural heritage restoration

Next Editions…

In 2019, inspired by the IUPAC Centenary Celebrations, the school will aim to teach Green Chemistry to young graduate and post-graduate chemists from all over the world, in particular to those from African countries. The School will be hosted by the Department of Chemistry at the University of Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania.
