Call for applications: Green Chemistry research grants for young scientists

Research in green chemistry and allied areas in biochemistry, geochemistry, biotechnology, ecology and healthcare give young scientists ample opportunity to demonstrate their inventiveness and provide important input to sustainable development. With this in mind, the Green Chemistry for Life Project was launched in 2013 by UNESCO’s International Basic Sciences Programme (IBSP) and PhosAgro, the largest producer of phosphate-based fertilizer in Europe, in close cooperation with the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

Over the course of 5 years, the project will offer research grants of up to US$30,000 to scientists aged 35 years or less with an innovative research project that respects the 12 principles of green chemistry, to help them implement their project.

The deadline for applications for this first round of applications is 28 February 2014.
