2019 is a year of change. As we prepare for the new term in the European institutions, we will also look to the future with the publication of the Mid-Century Report. These themes will be at the heart of this year’s convention.
We are pleased to host participants in Helsinki while Finland holds the presidency of the European Union. We will embrace the best of Finnish history, innovative spirit, architecture, cuisine and landscapes, while discussing the European and global challenges and opportunities in the Cefic and ICCA meetings. As always, we also offer an inspiring social programme for partners.
This year for Friday’s plenary session, we have secured renowned futurist and theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku, who will share his cutting-edge scientific knowledge in an inspirational keynote. The Convention will be concluded with a gala event in the emblematic Finlandia house, at the kind invitation of the Finnish chemical industry federation, Kemianteollisuus.
