Collaboration with the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC): Summer Schools on Green Chemistry
Since 2018, PhosAgro has been a general partner of IUPAC’s Summer Schools on Green Chemistry providing scholarships to young researches from developing economies. Over the course of two years, our total spending to support this project exceeded USD 30,000.
The second PhosAgro-supported Summer School on Green Chemistry operated in May 2019 at the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania as part of the International Year of the Periodic Table. The Company contributed more than USD 10,000 to the school’s scholarship fund. The 2019 Summer School drew a broad audience of young scholars from emerging and transition economies. Of the 50 grant winners, 35 represented African countries.
The third IUPAC Summer School on Green Chemistry to be supported by PhosAgro is scheduled to open in July 2020 and will follow up on the outcomes of a symposium called Chemistry Addressing the UN-17 Sustainable Development Goals and held during the IUPAC Congress in July 2019.
