2014 Great Lakes Green Chemistry Conference: Innovating for Success
Call for presentations/posters is now closed.
March 31-April 3, 2014
Join us at Wyndham Cleveland in Cleveland, Ohio for the 2014 Great Lakes Green Chemistry Conference with a focus on "Innovating for Success in Green Chemistry".
The purpose of this conference is to show how innovations in green chemistry drive advances in business, academia, policy, and human health protection in the Great Lakes region, and how integration and collaboration of these areas are crucial for success.
The conference will include keynotes, plenary sessions, panel sessions, breakout sessions, and a poster networking exchange. Submissions should specify a desire for inclusion as either a presentation or a poster.
This year, a poster networking exchange session will be offered to enable interactive discussions for research and implementation strategies related to green chemistry. We are inviting posters from anyone involved in research, safer formulations, new product development and implementation, decision-making tools, or technical assistance. Ideally, posters will make a connection between green chemistry expertise and business needs in product development in safer chemistry. Student involvement is encouraged and entries from students are welcome.
If you are involved in research, product development, or technical assistance related to green chemistry or safer chemical alternatives, this conference is for you. Content for this conference is primarily directed toward industry, but representatives from government, academia, and non-profits will benefit also from the presentations and networking opportunities.
