Euro-Chemistry is an organisation of European research funding agencies in chemistry. It aims at the establishment of new strategies for collaborative research and improved funding mechanisms and procedures. This will enable a better exploitation of chemistry for the benefit of European economy and society. New actions for chemistry at the European scale should result in order to address a number of grand challenges, contributing to the aims of Europe 2020.
