School on Physical Organic
at its 14th edition,
turns the spotlight on the pervasive role
of Chemical Science for the achievement of the “Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs)” identified by UN as the imperative mission for a sustainable
future with a target date of 2030 (A. Krief et al. Nature
Chemistry, 2015, 7, 941).
School aim is to reach out to the
young researchers who have the biggest potential for creativity and
innovation: the essentials of Frontier Research. The School is
especially designed for PhD students, post-docs and for
who is committed to courageous,
original, groundbreaking research that can make our World a better place.
To do so, E-WISPOC, offers an outstanding educational and training
program targeting a “challenge-oriented” approach.
a three-year roadmap at the heart of “Frontier Research”, in each
edition a thematic
is proposed to highlight the key role of Molecular and Materials
Science for application in three priority areas underpinning the SDGs’
securing environmentally sustainable energy supplies, and improving
efficiency of power generation, transmission and use.
Human health and Food:
Improving and maintaining accessible health, including disease
Raw materials &
Feedstocks: Creating and sustaining a supply of renewable
feedstocks, by designing processes and products that preserve resources.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals
or SDGs were
approved on 25.9.2015 as the «2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development» by the 193 member states of the UN.
