IYC Interests:Increase the public appreciation and understanding of chemistry
Encourage interest of young people in chemistry
Generate enthusiasm for the creative future of chemistry
Celebrate the role of women in chemistry
ECETOC shares a common interest with IYC 2011 in wanting to promote better public understanding of chemistry and encouraging talented young people to choose chemistry-related careers. Among other programmes, we provide a number of annual awards to young scientists.
ECETOC plays a major role in investigating the ecotoxicology and toxicology of chemicals, a role which is rapidly expanding and being drawn centre-stage with developments in cutting-edge fields such as nanotechnology. In the coming year we intend to expand the visibility of our research; a better-informed public is in the interest of all concerned.
