Sustainable Development through Green Chemistry


The Summer School on Green Chemistry will be held  from 4th to 10th July 2021, in Venice.

It will consist of 5 lecture days. Lectures will be at the level of state-of-the-art research contributions in the Green Chemistry field, but they will also cover background material.

Among the others, the following professors have, already, confirmed their presence and an hypotetic argument of their lecture:
