On Friday, April 22, 2016 the SCS Spring Meeting 2016 took place at University of Zurich. Five experts gave an insight view of "Green Chemistry" during their lecture and stimulated the discussion about possible and impossible developments of sustainability in our life in general and the chemistry around us in particular.

The SCS President, Alain De Mesmaeker, also awarded the Werner Prize 2016 to Maksym Kovalenko, ETHZ and EMPA Dübendorf, for his innovative studies in the chemistry, physics and applications of inorganic nanostructures.
