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.

Atmospheric pollution: chemistry, transport and monitoring

The International Summer School: “Atmospheric pollution: chemistry, transport and monitoring” is organized within the framework of the Graduate Program in Environmental Sciences, offered by the Graduate School of the University of Nova Gorica.

The International School will be held in Nova Gorica, Slovenia, during the period from 5 June till 18 June 2011.

The International School is intended for students at graduate level, who have research and future professional interests in atmospheric pollution and related environmental issues. Participants will have the opportunity to intensively interact with an international team of experts in the field of atmospheric and environmental science, and to present and discuss their study and research interests. We have invited top scientists and lecturers from universities all over the world, who will offer lectures in the areas of atmospheric transport, chemistry and monitoring techniques and instrumentation. The main emphasis will be given to atmospheric pollution originating from bio-fuels. The International School will be organized as a series of intensive lectures, case study presentations, together with hands on laboratory experience and field work.

Participants will be able to earn ECTS credits for completion of the International School, after their final evaluation.

Please see the website for further details.
