Physical chemistry has played a key role in the development on modern society. Therefore, a regular meeting between Chemists and Physicists, is needed to show the latest state-of-the-art of high technologies on each division, especially in a cross-border location. Within the framework of Eucor - The European Campus, the University of Strasbourg (2017 Host), the University of Basel, the University of Freiburg, the University of Upper-Alsace and Karlsruhe Institute for Technology, a potential of 15,000 teacher-researchers, 11,000 doctoral students and 115,000 students is mandatory to promote the scientific exchange of French, German and Swiss scientific communities. In this context, the Colloquium will be a step to emerge different educational systems, point of views and thinking diversity to enhance the forefront solutions for the global society.
Energy transition can be defined as a fundamental structural shift within the energy sector for a country. This fundamental change propagates in synergy with renewable energies and push for energy efficiency combined with phasing out fossil energies. Yet, this process differs between countries in terms of motivation, objectives, governance, challenges and opportunities. Paris global agreement endorses to a globalized effort of the participant countries to make this transition, and also to promote help to developing countries. This agreement has put in motion a movement that is now global. The European Union (EU) is a leader in climate change and carbon reduction initiatives. EU's policies and regulations aim to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 80%-95% below 1990 levels, by 2050. Europe´s Energy roadmap 2050 explores pathways for the transition to meet these GHG emissions goals while promoting competitiveness and security of supply.
