Elsevier Chemistry Connect China

Empowering forward-thinking, cross-disciplinary approaches in the chemical sciences


Chemists play a central role in solving major societal challenges. Most of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including those surrounding human health, energy and sustainability, are related to chemistry. At the nexus between science and politics, chemists are placed at the focal point of human development and one of China’s most important strategies is to foster innovation for the purpose of driving such development. This includes research in areas of basic science and technology, strategic advanced technologies, and areas related to the public welfare such as cheaper and cleaner energy, environmental protection and medicine.

Elsevier is dedicated to empowering chemical scientists to support forward thinking required to solve these challenges. We strive to not only deliver insights and data to fuel innovative research, but also to raise the visibility of important discussions about the future of chemistry innovation and research. With this in mind, Elsevier is teaming up with a number of top Chinese institutes to host a series of symposia related to these important topics and showcase the very best of chemistry research.


Each symposium features renowned local and international scientists who will share the latest developments to stimulate discussions on the future of these dynamic and ever-expanding fields. Click on each symposia to find out more and register to attend.
