Strategy and Governance


In December 2012, Council approved the Royal Society of Chemistry's new strategy, which aims to enable the organisation as a whole to build on past success and achieve even greater things in the future. It encompasses the organisation's aim to successfully lead and support the scientific community and to advance and raise awareness of the public benefit of the chemical sciences.

Our mission
"To advance excellence in the chemical sciences."

Our vision
Our new shared vision draws more strongly from our heritage - including the 'pro scientia et humanitate' motto on the RSC crest - and potential for success. It reflects the goal for the whole organisation:
"To be the leading voice and trusted partner for science and humanity."


All of our member networks and goverend by our Member Networks Committee which reports to Council via the Membership and Qualifications Board.
