The PhosAgro/UNESCO/IUPAC grant programme aims to promote the implementation of innovative research projects in green chemistry that respect the 12 principles of green chemistry. Young scientists aged 35 years or less with a PhD degree (or equivalent) in chemistry or its allied areas are invited to compete. Successful projects will be selected by an international scientific jury. Grants will be up to US$30,000 and should be awarded for research that may be completed in one year.
The PhosAgro/UNESCO/IUPAC partnership aims to generate and apply new scientific knowledge in green chemistry by promoting activity in this area. The partnership also seeks to reinforce the research capacities of participating institutes and the cooperation between them and to increase awareness of the opportunities offered by advances in green chemistry among policy- and decision-makers in governments, science and industry, and among the public at large....
The grants are intended to harness the talents of young scientists worldwide to advance the contribution of green chemistry to the protection of the environment and human health, the creation of new, environmentally-sound, science-based technologies, and the identification of novel vistas for energy savings and the use of natural resources.
Young scientists are invited to submit their applications no later than 28 February 2016.
