• 20. - 22.09.2022 / WIEN



The Austrian Chemistry Days are well known to offer a forum for presentation and discussion of recent progress in all areas of chemistry and chemical technologies and allow for strong interaction between young and old as well as universities and industry. Human interaction is by far the most important reagent of such meetings and although Zoom and Teams have come to our rescue the last two years, nothing can replace the in-person warmth and good will that is the essence of meetings.

The meeting will take place at TU Wien in Vienna, Austria, which is together with GÖCH host of the event and the main topic will be “Green Chemistry for a Sustainable Europe”. Internationally recognized speakers from universities as well as industry will shed some light on important issues in this regard, e.g. sustainability, energy storage, carbon capture etc., and how chemists can contribute to their solution.

Besides these keynote lectures there will be enough room and time for oral and poster presentations and there will also be some special workshops organized by and for young chemists which are of course open for everybody to attend.The Austrian Chemistry Days are a perfect opportunity to strengthen links between academia and industry and this year the Slovak Chemical Society will also be the official partner of this event. In addition to the scientific program, there will be an opportunity to visit some of the nearby industry, to get to know the beauty of Vienna, and enjoy Austrian cuisine.



Call for Abstracts extended until June 30th

All chemistry related topics are welcome! We especially invite phd and young researchers!
