6th EuCheMS 2016 is organized by two Societies that represent Europe and Spain respectively. EuCheMS and Anque. Here you will find information about their mission, scope and vision as well as facts about their structure.

EuCheMS is a non-profit organisation founded in 1970. Its object is to promote co- operation in Europe between non-profit scientific and technical societies in the field of chemistry and molecular sciences. EuCheMS has 42 member societies which together represent more than 150,000 chemists in academia, industry, government and professional organisations in 31 countries across Europe. EuCheMS has several Divisions and Working Groups which cover all areas of chemistry and bring together world class expertise in the underpinning science and development needed for innovation.

EuCheMS is based in Brussels and incorporates the role and responsibilities of the former Federation of European Chemical Societies and Professional Institutions (FECS) which adopted the name EuCheMS in 2004.

The activities of EuCheMS, as a supranational organization, are focussed on:

  • Increasing the visibility of Chemistry at the European level by speaking with a single voice,
  • Creating a European “corporate identity” among Chemical Societies”,
  • Presenting chemistry as an essential and indispensable provider of solutions for global challenges to European and international institutions and other relevant stakeholders.

Strengthening the position of chemistry in Europe can only be achieved by combining forces. The work of EuCheMS rest on three pillaras which are supposed to complement national activities of the Member Societies on a transnational level: networking, European chemistry congresses and policy development.
