On behalf of the Organising Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to be part of the 2022 RACI National Congress which will be held in Brisbane from 3-8 July, 2022. 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 is “Chemistry: Catalysing solutions to global challenges”. As this indicates, we will engage 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 look forward to welcoming to be part of the RACI National Congress in Brisbane in July 2022. We are sure that it will be an intellectually exciting and enjoyable event for all.
Professor Debra Bernhardt
