Applied Symposia

In the International Year of Chemistry 2011, the "Angewandte Chemie International Edition", the flagship of the GDCh journals and one of the most important chemistry publications worldwide, celebrated its 50th birthday. On the occasion of this anniversary, the GDCh organized two symposia in June together with the Japanese Chemical Society (CSJ), the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS), the German Research Foundation (DFG) as a partner of the "Research in Germany" initiative and the publishing house Wiley-VCH Tokyo and Beijing. These events were intended to recognize top achievements in chemistry and to strengthen the scientific dialogue between the GDCh and its partner organizations in Japan and China. Four Nobel Prize winners for chemistry and other world-class chemists were represented as speakers at the symposia, which could also be followed on video on the Internet.
