In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 and to protect the health of our community members, we decided to postpone the SCS Spring Meeting to a later date. We fully support and comply with the regulations of the Swiss government and the measures taken by employers of our members.

To provide a platform for the community of the recently formed SCS Section of Chemistry and the Environment' the 2021 edition of the SCS Spring Meeting will still be dedicated to this important topic. The event will take place at the FHNW Muttenz on Thursday, April 15, 2021.

The Swiss Chemical Society Spring Meeting is a one day symposium and provides a high quality program with national and international speakers on a certain topic.

The topic of the 2020 edition is «Chemistry and the Environment» and the event takes place at the FHNW in Muttenz. The board of the SCS Section Chemistry and the Environment (SCE) invites you to join the event and is looking forward to welcoming you in Muttenz on April 3, 2020.

The Section Chemistry and the Environment (SCE)

The SCE represents scientists from all fields of fundamental and applied research in environmental sciences and regulatory experts and acts on their behalf in national and international organizations. The Section’s activities include all research areas related to chemical processes that molecules undergo in the environment and their impact on the environment. It includes atmospheric, aquatic and soil chemistry, and the effect of molecules on living organisms.

  • Disseminate information through the organization and sponsorship of meetings, seminars, workshops and lectures
  • Provide a networking platform for environmental scientists to exchange ideas and expert knowledge between academia, industry and regulatory experts 
  • Facilitate contact with leading experts in the field
  • Represent SCE scientists’ interests in national and international organizations 
  • Networking
  • Scientific events to promote the exchange of knowledge in all areas of environmental chemistry
  • Events are going to be organized at industrial or academic locations to facilitate interdisciplinary exchange
