INCREASE organises the 4th edition of the world event in green chemistry research and innovation ...

INCREASE organises the 3rd edition of the International Symposium on Green Chemistry (ISGC).
ISGC will be held in La Rochelle, 16th-19th May 2017.

The main objective of ISGC-2017 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 and competitiveness of our Industry. To contribute to solve this complex equation, ISGC-2017 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-2017 will gather more than 800 attendees from all around who will exchange on the most recent advances in the field of green chemistry through plenary lectures, keynotes, oral and flash communications and posters organized around multi-parallel sessions with 6 principal topics and industrial sessions. 

New in 2017 : to facilitate access to cutting edge research and enable industrials to present their know-how, technologies and innovations, ISGC has created the "Green Chemistry Challenge" and offers an exhibition area, industrial sessions and 1-to-1 meetings for all the participants, with ability to send or receive meeting requests and view companies & academic laboratories profiles.


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.
