On behalf of the Organising Committee, I would like to thank everyone who attended the RACI 2022 National Congress in Brisbane from 3-8 July 2022.
The RACI National Congress comprised of 1,148 attendees, 615 speakers, 21 exhibitors, 12 sponsors and 325 posters for viewing.
This is the premier meeting of chemistry professionals from across the country and the globe, and is organised through the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI). RACI is the national professional body for chemists in industry, academia and government and is the primary voice of chemistry in Australia. It advocates the importance of chemistry to the public, all levels of education, industry and government and promotes the critical role of chemistry in tackling global challenges.
Every five years the RACI brings together chemistry professionals from across all its divisions, academia, industry and government to showcase the latest breakthroughs in our discipline, explore new opportunities for collaboration and to network with preeminent members of the international chemistry community. The theme for the 2022 National Congress was “Chemistry: Catalysing solutions to global challenges”. As this indicates, we engaged members from all fields of chemistry in efforts to formulate genuine and sustainable solutions to our biggest global challenges including alternative energy sources, climate change, food security and antibiotic resistance through presentations and discussions.
We thank you again for attending this spectacular congress and look forward to seeing you at the next RACI National Congress
