SCI 2024 – XXVIII National Congress

SCI 2024 – XXVIII National Congress

The most important chemistry event in Italy; the theme of the event is “Chemistry: Elements of Future”.

The event will discuss the key role that chemistry plays in meeting the challenges of sustainable development: circular economy, environmental preservation, climate change mitigation, energy solutions, health protection, and guiding the transition to the economy and society of the future. The congress will bring together leading national and international chemists representing a wide range of sectors including research, education, industry, and academia.

An exciting new addition to SCI 2024 is the large exhibition area, which will provide an opportunity to explore innovative technical solutions in a variety of areas. This platform provides an opportunity to make valuable connections with industry experts and publishers.

Another special feature is that the event will integrate science and the arts in various ways. Examples include a play about women and the periodic table, environmental advocacy through science and jazz music, and 15 thematic sessions on topics like cultural heritage preservation, general chemistry, and relevant real-life cases. See below for more details.
