The EuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC) is a major, biannual chemistry conference, where Chemists from all parts of Europe and beyond come together to present and discuss the latest achievements in cutting edge chemical sciences. The EuChemS Executive Board has chosen the offer of the KVCV for the organisation of the 10th edition of this prestigious event in the Flemish city of Antwerp.
Antwerp houses a significant chemical cluster of Europe, extending over the borders into the Netherlands, and Nordrhein-Westfalen in Germany. The chemical companies in these three regions are strongly interconnected and offer innovative solutions for the global challenges of today and tomorrow. Moreover, the area also hosts an important pharma and life sciences industry. These organisations provide opportunities for the thousands of chemists who graduated from renowned universities in the region.
Before the 2026 ECC10, the upcoming 9th congress, ECC9 will be held in Dublin, Ireland in 2024, and is being organised by the Institute of Chemistry of Ireland (ICI).
