Regional Workshop on Chemistry for Safety, Security and Environmental Protection for GRULAC Member States, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 11 and 12 December 2017

Published: 2017-10-11

International Foundation For Science (IFS) is co-organizing the above workshop together with Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the National Authority of Argentina. The conference will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 11 and 12 December 2017

Jointly IFS and OPCW since 1998,  have seeked to  provide support to a number of research projects through a long-term cooperation agreement. Towards the same efforts of collaboration, IFS and OPCW, have also organised joint regional workshops to summarise the success of the funded research and to advance knowledge transfer and cooperation in specific fields of chemistry.

The proposed focus for this years workshop is 'Developments in chemistry for safety, security and environmental protection' and would target the GRULAC Member States, where such topics were highly present among the IFS funded research projects.

Thematic areas of the workshop will be: 

  1. green and sustainable chemistry techniques for safety and security at chemical sites;
  2. renewable bio-based resources for chemicals production (biofuels and biorefineries); and
  3. remediation and clean-up of polluted sites.


The workshop is intended to provide an arena for representatives, experts from scientific communities including the former grantees of IFS in the fields mentioned above, representatives from chemical industry, international organisations, governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to discuss the above issues and beyond.
