INCREASE organises the 5th edition of the world event in green chemistry research and innovation ...

INCREASE organises the 5rd edition of the International Symposium on Green Chemistry (ISGC).
ISGC will be held in La Rochelle, 13th-17th May 2019.

The main objective of ISGC-2019 is to gather the most eminent scientists involved in the field of green chemistry to debate on the future challenges of Chemistry keeping in mind the problems of access to a sustainable energy, the management of resources (carbon, water, metals, minerals), Human development, global warming, impact on the environment, competitiveness of our Industry, etc. To contribute to solve this complex equation, ISGC-2019 has been thought as a cross-disciplinary platform and should offer to public and private scientists an ideal platform for sharing fundamental knowledge with industrial research and development stakeholders. 

On the continuation of the previous editions, ISGC-2019 will gather more than 800 attendees who will exchange on the most recent advances in the field of green chemistry through plenary lectures, keynotes, oral and posters communications organized around multi-parallel sessions with 11 principal topics. 

 Beside the scientific program, an exhibition & business convention will be organized to enable industrials to show their innovations, to facilitate public-private and private-private partnerships, to present new challenges in R&D, to facilitate exchanges between participants, etc.

New in 2019, ISGC will also aim at improving public perception and awareness on sustainable chemistry through the organization of general conferences. Raising awareness and progressively educating our society on the issues surrounding sustainable development has become a priority to accelerate the emergence of eco-designed chemicals, technologies or services on the market

We do really hope you will enjoy this unique moment to share your vision about green chemistry with other countries and to contribute to the emergence of new and sustainable technologies for a greener world.

We look forward seeing you at this occasion in this beautiful part of France.

Sincerely yours. 


INCREASE, a new model of public/private partnering ...

INCREASE is a public/private research network hosted by the CNRS (FR CNRS 3707).

The International Consortium on Eco-conception and renewable resources (INCREASE) is  a public/private research network hosted by the CNRS (FR CNRS 3707) where academic and industrial partners work together to tackle scientific hurdles and to jointly create an intellectual property roadmap.
This public/private partnership should accelerate the commercialization of sustainable and safe chemicals to satisfy the need of our society to limit its impact on the Planet. 

Projects developed within the framework of INCREASE involve about 100 personnel including researchers, engineers, technicians, PhD and postdocs. 
The scientific strategy of INCREASE covers the development of cutting-edge technologies (non-thermal atmospheric plasma, milling, ultrasound, electrochemistry, microwaves, photochemistry, etc.) for production of organic-building blocks from non-edible resources.

Key words are : research, network, valorization, mundialisation, education.
