The Green Chemistry Innovation Portal: Connecting to Excellence in Innovation

Monday, October 26, 2015 |  1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT


Brand_Avatar_with title-200px.pngThe Green Chemistry & Commerce Council and the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® have partnered to create a new online platform for green chemistry professionals to share information and collaborate on research and innovative technologies. The Green Chemistry Innovation Portal is a free resource created to connect and grow the green chemistry community, exchange resources and information, and facilitate collaborations. Join us for this webinar to learn about the Portal—its features and how to use it—and to hear perspectives from academia and industry on the value of the Portal for advancing green chemistry innovation.
