The organizing committee cordially invites you to attend the 2nd French-Polish Chemistry Congress, which will be held in Montpellier, France on 28-31 August 2023.

The 2nd French-Polish Chemistry Congress aims to popularize the achievements of Polish and French research teams in the field of chemistry. A particular attention will be paid to supramolecular, organic, (photo)catalytic, magnetic and biochemical chemistry, since their main concepts are the underpinning of multiple directions of modern research leading to the creation of new nanomaterials, catalysts and molecular switches vital to information gathering and processing. In turn, the interactions of small ligands with biomolecules are of great importance in the design of drugs effective in anti-cancer and gene therapies.

The program includes lectures of notable French and Polish chemists. Important contribution will be also given by PhD and MSc students.

2nd French-Polish Chemistry Congress will bring together junior and experienced scientists. Keynote lectures will be delivered by prominent speakers: Prof. Artur Ciesielski, Prof. Karol Grela, Prof. Teofil Jesionowski, Prof. Guillaume Maurin, Prof. Miłosz Pawlicki and Dr. Sebastien Ulrich.

The French-Polish Chemistry Congress in 4th-6th 2019 focused over 100 scientists!

The program included lectures by the Nobel Laureate in Chemistry – Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn and other notable chemists: Prof. Krzysztof Matyjaszewski, Prof. Bruno Ameduri, Prof. Karol Grela, Prof. Mir Wais Hosseini and Prof. Adam Proń. Several plenary and invited lectures as well as oral communications and poster presentations were also held.

The Congress provided a forum to discuss aspects of all fields of chemistry: from macrocyclic and supramolecular chemistry, through topics concerning materials science and ending up with nanoscience, following the spirit and style of the two preceding Assises. It also offered networking opportunities among colleagues – recognized leaders in the field, young scientists, and students.

Short history of Assises Franco-Polonaises de Chimie

Ie Assises began with the evening gala – Soiree d’hommage à Jean-Marie Lehn – on July 23, 2015 at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Paris, dedicated to Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn from the University of Strasbourg, Nobel laureate in chemistry in 1987, the member of the College de France. Another important event was a popular science lecture given by Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn “De la Matière à la Vie: Chimie? Chimie” in French, his native language. The audience had no doubts that Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn is a virtuoso of chemistry. July 24, 2015 was the day of the scientific conference Assises Franco-Polonaises de Chimie, where 15 lectures were given. At the end of the conference, young scientists, PhD students at the Faculty of Chemistry, Adam Mickiewicz University, presented the results of their research to Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn. The intimate atmosphere of the meeting in the stylish hall of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Paris made these young people most satisfied with the participation in the meeting, since they had the opportunity to talk to the best French researchers.

On March 14-15, 2018 at the Scientific Station of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Paris second scientific symposium took place – IIe Assises Franco-Polonaises de Chimie. The festive evening on March 14, 2018 at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Paris was dedicated to Prof. Jean-Pierre Sauvage, University of Strasbourg, Nobel laureate in the field of chemistry in 2016 together with Sir J. Fraser Stoddart and Professor Ben L. Feringa, member of French Académie des Sciences, co-inventor of molecular machines, who gave a popular science lecture entitled “Molecular machines in biology and in chemistry”. In addition, on March 15, 2018, 17 lecturers presented their achievements in various fields: from supramolecular chemistry through catalysis, hybrid materials, graphene to applications in sensors and power engineering.

The Assises Franco-Polonaises de Chimie are intended to extend and disseminate the achievements of Polish and French research groups and to promote international cooperation.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all in Montpellier!
