Event description
The Embassy of Italy in the UK and the ICI in London, in collaboration with AISUK, presents the first Science for Society event.

About this Event

On the occasion of the UNESCO International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements.

The European Chemical Society (EuChemS) has produced a new periodic table as a contribution to the UNESCO proclaimed International Year of the Periodic Table. It highlights the amount of each element in the earth’s crust and atmosphere and the vulnerability to dispersion over the next few years. We shall discuss what we must do to nurture the 90 elements that are the only building block of our beautiful and diverse world.
