European Chemical Society (EuChemS)

Logo EuChemS

EuChemS is the umbrella organization of the Chemical Societies in geographical Europe, embracing (as of 2017) 41 Member Societies and 5 Supporting Members in 32 countries and representing about 156'000 individuals (including 31'000 students).

EuChemS' Vision:

  • Placing chemistry at the heart of European policy
  • Be an independent and united voice for chemistry in Europe

The activities of EuChemS, as a supranational organization, are focussed on

  • increasing the visibility of chemistry at the European level by speaking with a single voice,
  • creating a European “corporate identity” among the Chemical Societies,
  • presenting chemistry as an essential and indispensable provider of solutions for global challenges to European and international institutions and other re- levant stakeholders.


Strengthening the position of chemistry in Europe can only be achieved by combining forces and by genuine solidarity. The work of EuChemS rests on three pillars which are supposed to complement national activities of the Member Societies on a transnational level: networking, European chemistry congresses and policy development. 


The Divisions, Working Parties and the European Young Chemists‘ Network (EYCN) have developed strong thematic networks in scientific areas as well as on general issues re- lated to chemistry. Every individual is invited to participate, and related divisions in national societies to link with the EuChemS divisions, Working Parties and EYCN.
