Japan-UK Symposium : Catalysis for a Sustainable World

15 - 16 July 2010, London

In the development of new technologies and processes, the requirement for sustainability is paramount.  In addition, innovation is required to substitute old products and processes for new greener ones.  This symposium will highlight ways in which catalysis can provide chemistry solutions to many of the challenges that face society in sustainability.


This joint symposium features speakers and posters from Japanese and UK scientists.  It aims to bring together scientists working in the field of catalysis for sustainability from the UK and Japan. It offers an opportunity for networking and international collaboration and will strengthen links between the two countries.


This event marks the signing of an International Cooperation Agreement between the Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ) and the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).  The signing of a five-year International Cooperation Agreement will take place at an evening drinks reception, which all delegates are invited to.


Discussion between the RSC and the CSJ has identified many potential areas of collaboration. After the signing the two societies will work together to develop a program of work in areas of mutual interest and organise joint events and projects in these areas.

Registration is free but places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  To register follow the link for Registration on the webpage (or go straight to this URL:
