GDCh - Fachgruppe VCW (Association for Chemistry and Economics)

We founded the Association for Chemistry and Economics as a Division of the GDCh. It emerged after three years of construction work of the Working Group "Chemistry and Industry".

Our vision is to combine natural sciences, especially chemistry, and economics. An important goal here is the formation of an international chemical industry network. Our profile provides further information on the aims and purposes of the association.

The association aims to address chemists, natural scientists and engineers as well as other people connected to chemistry or the chemical industry. This spectrum can be found among the members of our association.

To achieve our goals, we need the support and cooperation of many individuals. We would be delighted if you were interested in the VCW and we would like to encourage you to get in touch with us.
