Research in green chemistry and allied areas in biochemistry, geochemistry, biotechnology, ecology and healthcare give young scientists ample opportunity to demonstrate their inventiveness and provide important input to sustainable development. With this in mind, the Green Chemistry for Life Project was launched in 2013 by UNESCO’s International Basic Sciences Programme (IBSP) and PhosAgro, the largest producer of phosphate-based fertilizer in Europe, in close cooperation with the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). The program recently completed two separate calls:
the 3rd Green Chemistry research grants for young scientists, and
the 1st Green Chemistry special grants for research projects on phosphogypsum.
The next round of applications for both programs will be announced in September 2016.
