Welcome to the ACE

The Association of Chemistry and the Environment (ACE) is a non-profit-making scientific association founded in October 2000 by a group of European scientists. We aim to promote global contact between scientists in academia and research institutes, the commercial sector and social representatives within governmental and regulatory bodies to address environmental problems and to promote education in this area.

We strongly welcome scientists from diverse fields such as atmosphere science, biology, geology, industrial chemistry, medicine, sociology, soil science, toxicology and water science to play an active role within the organisation.

Facing the Corona-pandemic many conferences and events have been postponed or cancelled. Also ACE has discussed how to organize the forthcoming EMEC meeting planned for December 2020 under the current conditions. Finally, the organizing committee and the ACE board decided jointly to postpone the 21st European Meeting on Environmental Chemistry (EMEC21) by one year. Noteworthy, also the EMEC scholarships have been shifted to 2021.

We hope to meet you all again in December 2021 in Novi Sad !
