The Gordon Research Seminar on Green Chemistry is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
During the pandemic, the world came to a halt and brought the opportunity to re-think the way we can shift towards a circular economy. The focus of this meeting is to discuss the latest advances in the field that can bring us closer to sustainable development and minimized environmental impact. Achieving such a final goal requires complex solutions and therefore, this is a multidisciplinary meeting covering all spectrums of a circular economy, from the source (bioderived materials/elemental sustainability), through the process (cut-edge catalysis/ biorefineries/advances in batteries) until end-of-life (design for degradation/recycling/pollution prevention and remediation). This GRS is an excellent opportunity for young scientists to get in touch with the Green Chemistry community and build a collaborative network towards a more sustainable future through scientific innovation.
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 23, 2022. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
