Building Links Between Green Chemists and Business in Education
On September 7 and 8, 2012, McGill University (Montréal, Canada) hosted a unique workshop designed to foster green innovation in the next generation.

Two guests speakers gave lectures putting green chemistry in the context of industry.
This workshop was made possible through funding from the CREATE program of NSERC, a Canadian federal funding agency, and the Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management. Steve Maguire (from the School of Management) and I created an organized the whole two-day event. And we’re very excited about it. We’ll definitely do it again next year.
