The International Chemistry Olympiad in France in 2019!

Dr Didier Bourissou has been nominated as an Academia Europaea member. Congratulations Didier and team LBPB for the new recognition.

The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is a high-level annual scientific competition for the world’s most talented chemistry students at the secondary school level. They have been organized since 1968. 70 to 80 Countries from all around the world send a team of up to four students who are tested on their chemistry knowledge and skills in a five-hour laboratory practical and five-hour written theoretical examination.

The program is intended to stimulate student interest in chemistry through independent and creative solving of chemical problems. It also aims to promote international contacts in chemistry, friendships between young scientific workers of different nationalities, cooperation among pupils, and exchange of pedagogical and scientific experience in chemistry.

France has participated since 1981, and sends each year a delegation of four candidates selected mainly from scientific terminale classes and first-year scientific preparatory classes.

In July 2015, the International Jury meeting in Baku, Azerbaijan, retained France's candidacy for the organization of the 51st International Chemistry Olympiads scheduled for July 2019 (IChO France 2019). Under the aegis of the Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research, the organization of this event is led by Ms. Anne Scymczak, General Inspector of National Education. The event associates Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Didier Bourissou as honorary president and chairman of the scientific and educational committee, respectively.
