 2017 NextGen GreenChem Workshop

We are looking forward to an exciting workshop on June 12 in Reston, Virginia. This will be our first NextGen GreenChem Workshop hosted by the Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference (GC&E). This year, the focus of the workshop will be two-fold. The first part of the workshop taps into a new paradigm in science: the ability to communicate your research effectively to a variety of audiences. The second part of the workshop is a unique opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students as well as post-doctoral scholars to explore real-world applications of green chemistry.

In preparation for the workshop there are a few things YOU need to know:
