8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC8)

The event had been postponed from 2020 to 2022 due to concerns about COVID-19.  

The EuChemS Chemistry Congress is the largest European chemistry congress. It is held every other year in a different European country. Events so far have taken place in Budapest, Torino, Nuremberg, Prague, Istanbul, Seville, Liverpool, and now in Lisbon.
