IUPAC Strategic Plan -- 2000-2001
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) was formed
in 1919 by chemists from industry and academia. Over eight decades,
the Union has succeeded in fostering worldwide communications in the
chemical sciences and in uniting chemistry - academic, industrial and
governmental - in a common language. IUPAC has long been recognized
as the world authority on chemical nomenclature, terminology, standardized
methods for measurement, atomic weights, and many other critically evaluated
data. The Union has long sponsored major international meetings that
range from specialized scientific
symposia to CHEMRAWN
meetings with societal impact.
Two years ago, following a series of meetings to obtain input from
leaders in chemistry in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, IUPAC
redefined its mission and established goals and strategies to guide
its approach to the shaping of the chemical sciences and the service
of chemistry in a rapidly changing world. The IUPAC Strategic Plan,
2000-2001 updates the initial Strategic
Plan published in 1998.
