As a professor of chemistry at the Universidad de Oviedo (Oviedo, Spain) I would like to participate in this 2011 International Year of Chemistry. I am involved in a cooperation program that has joined the University of Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and the Universidad de Oviedo (Spain). Along with other Spanish research institution ( CSIC, Consejo Superior

de Investigaciones Científicas, Spanish National Research Council), we have organized

a short workshop (Chemistry in Ethiopia) under our Spanish Program for Inter-University cooperation for the last week of October. We would like to celebrate this special year of Chemistry in Ethiopia with this special workshop.
