Frontiers in Agronomy, in collaboration with the Chief Editors Prof. John R Porter and Prof Monica Höfte, is organizing a webinar for International Women’s Day to reflect on challenges and opportunities for women in the field.
The webinar is taking place on March 8th at 10 am CET.
On Nov.27 – Dec.1, 2022 the “Sustainable Industrial Processing Summit” will take place at Hilton Phuket Arcadia, Thailand (https://www.flogen.org/sips2022/) . This multidisciplinary summit is organized by the not-for-profit corporation FLOGEN Stars Outreach, which is dedicated to achieving sustainability through science and technology applied in various fields. Until now the participation of
9 Nobel Laureates has been confirmed and 500 confirmations and proposals have been already received.
Among several symposia that will take place during this Summit , the “2 nd International Symposium on Solid-State Chemistry for Applications & Sustainable Development” will honor Prof. Miguel Alario y Franco, Emeritus Professor at Universidad Complutense, Madrid, Spain, former President of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Spain and EurASc Fellow.
This major symposium focuses on solid-state chemistry and illustrates the relationships occurring between the synthesis, structure, and physical-chemical properties of solid inorganic compounds, leading to a final material with optimized properties such as advances in the synthesis routes, design of materials for sustainable energy production, advanced characterization techniques and applications, etc.

The two academies report that, as a consequence of anthropogenic perturbations, the global ocean is warming, acidifying, losing oxygen and sea ice, and sea level is rising. While drastic reduction of the emission of greenhouse gases is urgently needed, which includes ocean energy substitution for fossil energy, we show that the ocean offers numerous opportunities to reduce the causes and consequences of climate change, globally and locally. A wide range of ocean-based measures to enhance societal climate adaptation are currently implemented worldwide to deal either with coastal risks or changes in ocean resources. Ocean-related measures should not be considered as a substitute for climate mitigation on land or non ocean-based adaptation measures, which must be strongly pursued for the benefit of the atmosphere, the ocean, and socio-ecological systems worldwide.”

“Dear colleagues and friends,
Ttwo weeks ago many of you received the message below about the Quantum Manifesto.
Up to now, 900 people endorsed it, but we would like to reach a few thousands endorsements. I understand that not everybody is aware that endorsements are open to everyone who is working in our field in Europe, including each student of each group.
This is extremely important to show to European decision makers how strong the support from the scientific community is.
So if you agree with the Manifesto, please go to http://qurope.eu/manifesto (where you can also download it), state your name, affiliation and organization type, and click “Submit”.
If you are signing as a representative of a whole institution or group of people, please indicate that in the Comments field.
Thanks a lot for your support!
PS: please distribute as widely as possible, to get as many endorsement as we can.”
The Netherlands is holding this conference in the context of the Presidency of The European Union, in cooperation with the European Commission and the QuTech centre for quantum technology. The conference will take place on 17-18 May 2016 in Europe Building (Amsterdam) and will gather high level representatives from industry, academia and policy communities. During the event a Quantum Manifesto will be presented containing a comprehensive strategy to ensure Europe remains at the forefront of this emerging technology.

The 21st International Symposium on Fluorine Chemistry (21stISFC) will be organized jointly with the 6th International Symposium on Fluorous Technologies 2015 (ISoFT’15) in Como (Italy) from 23rd August to 28th August 2015.
This joint event will cover all aspects of fluorine chemistry and fluorous technologies, spanning materials science, energy applications, sustainable processes, biomedicine, and nanotechnology. The program will comprise invited lectures by internationally renowned speakers working in academia, industrial laboratories, and research institutes. Oral presentations and poster sessions will give participants an occasion to disseminate their results and to become acquainted with the latest developments in all fields related to fluorine chemistry and fluorous technologies. Particular emphasis will be given on creating opportunities for young scientists to networking with both peers and recognized leaders in all fields wherein fluorine offers an extra value.
