The “Liguria” and “Piemonte/Valle d’Aosta” sections of the Italian Chemical Society and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur section of the French Chemical Society organize in Avignon on April 25th – 26th , 2016, the eighth edition of the Franco-Italian Chemistry Days. These Days are inter-disciplinary and have established a lasting contact between researchers of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region and those in the regions of Liguria and Piedmont-Aosta Valley, in order to get closer integration at European level both scientifically and culturally.
This event, which takes place every two years and is organized alternately in the two countries, took place in 2002 in Juan-les-Pins, in 2004 in Genoa, in 2006 in Turin, in 2008 in Nice, in 2010 in Genoa, in 2012 in Marseille, and in 2014 in Turin.
The program covers all the chemical areas, including organic chemistry and bio-organic chemistry, physical and inorganic chemistry, chemical engineering, analytical and pharmaceutical chemistry, environmental chemistry, industrial chemistry and materials chemistry.
During these days we have scheduled four prestigious plenary lectures, four speakers invited by the conference organizing committee, more than thirty oral presentations, highlighting young researchers, and about a hundred posters.
