Second Joint NSFC-RSC Symposium on Sustainable Chemistry and Processes

19 - 20 September 2019, York, United Kingdom


Phishing Warning
We are aware that some speakers and delegates have been approached by companies claiming to operate on behalf of the Royal Society of Chemistry to book their travel and accommodation for our conferences. Please note that whilst we do sometimes work with accommodation providers in order to facilitate hotel bookings, they would never approach you in the first instance. Details of accommodation providers that we are working with are in the ‘accommodation’ section of this webpage. If you are unsure about an e-mail / phone call you receive, please contact us and do not provide any credit card details or personal information.
Introduction
Continuous innovation in green and sustainable chemistry is tremendously important in our everyday lives and will be vital in helping the world respond to some of its biggest sustainability challenges. This symposium, co-organised by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the Royal Society of Chemistry, will bring together leading Chinese and UK researchers in sustainable chemistry in order to share expertise and best practice and discuss cutting edge research and applications. The venue is the University of York, a global centre of excellence for green and sustainable chemistry. During the course of the two days of the meeting established scientists and outstanding early career researchers will deliver a series of invited talks. In addition, there will be a poster session for young researchers and students to participate with prizes awarded for the best posters.

The theme of sustainable chemistry and processes is an area of great importance, supporting the achievement of the sustainable development goals. Topics of the symposium include:
  • Green chemicals and biomass processing
  • Catalysis
  • Gas storage and utilisation
  • Continuous flow processes
  •  Porous materials
The organisers are also delighted to announce that the symposium will feature the presentation of the RSC 2018 Green Chemistry Award to Professor James Clark, for the promotion of applied, market-driven green chemistry and engagement with industry and policymakers. The presentation will be followed by a lecture.

Grants for Carers

Grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities, for more information please refer to the ‘bursaries’ section on this page.

Grants for Carers

You can apply for up to a maximum of £1000/year to assist with additional financial costs that you incur for care usually provided by you whilst you attend a chemistry related meeting, conference or workshop or a professional development event.

Caring responsibilities are wide and varied, and so each application will be individually assessed, examples of applications that we will consider include:
  • paying for extra home help or nursing care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
  • additional medical/respite care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
  • travel expenses for a relative to travel with you to care for dependents whilst you attend a meeting or event
  • paying for extended hours with a care worker/childminder/play scheme to cover time when you will arrive home later than normal.
You are eligible to apply if: 
  • you are a chemist
  • you will incur additional caring expenses whilst attending a chemistry-related meeting, conference, event or workshop or a professional development event
  • you will use these funds to cover the cost of care that you usually provide 
  • you are based in the UK or Ireland or if not, you will normally have held three years RSC membership (past or current).
These grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities

These grants have been supported by The Royal Society of Chemistry’s Chemists’ Community Fund.
