Euro-Chemistry: A European synergy for research in chemistry

Euro-Chemistry brings together national research organizations and funding agencies to establish joint strategies for collaborative research and improves funding mechanisms for European research in chemistry.

Today, chemistry is one of the key driving forces behind the welfare development of our society and for the global competitiveness of the European economy. Environment, health, energy and materials are grand challenges for chemistry which go beyond what can be achieved at a national level. European research organizations and funding agencies need to join forces to create the synergy required for such a challenge. Euro-Chemistry aims at combining and strengthening national efforts for chemistry into European strategies. This follows the dynamics created by CERC3. Euro-Chemistry will collaborate with other consortia including industry federations. European networks and technology platforms and scientific societies to design the future of the European chemistry.
