“Could your latest discovery be
the basis for a new medicine, material or an entirely new industry?
What steps should you take next on the road to real world impact?”
European Winter School on Physical
The Academy of Frontier Research
Will your Chemistry Make the World a Better Place?

School on Physical Organic Chemistry (E-WiSPOC), at
its 13th edition, turns the spotlight on the
pervasive role of Chemical Science for the
achievement of the “Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs)” identified by UN as the
imperative mission for a sustainable future with a target date of
2030 (A. Krief et al. Nature Chemistry, 2015, 7, 941).
School aim is to reach out to the young researchers who have the
biggest potential for creativity and innovation: the essentials of
Frontier Research. The School is especially designed for PhD
students, post-docs and for everyone who is committed to courageous, original,
groundbreaking research that can make our World a better place.
To do so, E-WISPOC, offers an outstanding educational and training
program targeting a “challenge-oriented” approach.
a three-year roadmap at the heart of “Frontier Research”, in each
edition a thematic
is proposed to highlight the key role of Molecular and Materials
Science for application in three priority areas underpinning the SDGs’
Energy: Creating and
securing environmentally sustainable energy supplies, and improving
efficiency of power generation, transmission and use.
Human health and Food:
Improving and maintaining accessible health, including disease
Raw materials & Feedstocks:
Creating and sustaining a supply of renewable feedstocks, by designing
processes and products that preserve resources.
Development Goals or SDGs were approved on 25.9.2015 as the «2030
Sustainable Development» by the 193 member states of the UN.
