I am the director of the Hungarian Chemical Industry Association (MAVESZ) which is also carrying out its program for IYC 2011. I am interested in learning about global program events related to IYC, and in this context, about national efforts to enhance interest, especially among young people, towards chemistry and to highlight the social and economic benefits of the application of the achievements of chemical sciences and chemical industry.
