SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION

Green Chemistry is the use of chemistry for pollutant source reduction; the definition encompasses therefore all aspects and chemical processes that reduce impact on human health and on the environment. Its goal is to improve the quality of life and the competitiveness of industry, by developing alternative syntheses for important industrial chemicals.
To this end, significant challenges are available for chemistrs to design new syntheses that are less polluting, and to gain detailed understanding of the scientific facts and of the technical base needed to support sustainable development and environmental protection.
The School will provide the unique opportunity to bring together a number of experts in the field of Green Chemistry and young researchers interested in this topic, this synergy of competencies will certainly be a valuable occasion to promote diffusion of the knowledge in this emerging field.
The number of participants will be limited to 60 post-graduate students and post-doctoral researchers from EU countries, and hopefully 6-10 from Asia, Balkan and Eastern Europe countries.
The age limit for attendees is 35 years. We are confident that a very good student to teacher ratio (4/1), the setting, the type of accomodation, and the informal atmosphere will make the school particularly suitable for a profitable and continuous exchange of ideas and information, and for the establishment of long lasting scientific relationships.
The teaching will be divided in basic themes (Atom economy, Industrial Processes, Alternative Solvents, New Feedstocks and Products, New Reactions and New Synthetic Methods), and special topics selected according to the availability of the teachers.
Each year the School will pose particular attention on the description of existing Industrial Processes, on case histories and on examples of clean organic processes.
In addition topics related to current research in Green Chemistry will be adressed with the aim to familiarize the students with the strategies behind the planning and designing of efficient and "greener" synthetic routes.
