A message from the 2022 Nobel Chemistry Laureate

14 November, 2022

"Chemistry is omnipresent, in fact everything around us including ourselves is chemistry. 

Thus, chemistry is not only an education; it is a conceptual route to understand our existence.

We are still only scratching the surface of the complexity we see around us from a chemical point of view.

We need chemistry to solve most global issues and live our lives in a sustainable manner. 

We need chemistry to understand the importance of sharing the resources of our world with all our fellow human beings.

Chemistry may provide a societal framework supporting proper political decisions and ethical considerations.

Study your chemistry with this perspective and a great sense of curiosity, to make ground breaking discoveries.”
