Today (27 January) 2011 sees the official launch of the International Year of Chemistry (IYC 2011) at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) headquarters in Paris.
SusChem will be celebrating IYC 2011 at its Stakeholder annual event to be held in the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, the Netherlands on May 17. The meeting has already been recognized as an official IYC 2011 event.
SusChem will also be present at the two-day launch event in Paris in the exhibition area featuring the SusChem Smart Energy Home concept. The technology platform will be contributing enthusiastically to this year-long celebration of chemistry as the solution-provider for the challenges facing society today.
IYC 2011 is a joint initiative of UNESCO and the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) under the unifying theme “Chemistry – our life, our future”: a sentiment that is at the heart of SusChem thinking.
