The IUPAC-UNESCO-UNIDO Training for Safety and Environmental Protection
in Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnological Research and Production
is an activity undertaken by the Committee
on Chemistry and Industry (COCI).
Each scientist or engineer accepted into the Safety Training Program
is assigned to an IUPAC Company Associate
in an industrialized country. The period of training is typically
one to three weeks. Accommodation, subsistence and travel expenses
are provided for all trainees. In recent years, Fellows from Turkey,
Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, China, and Uruguay, have received training
at host Companies in the U.S.A., Japan, South Africa, and UK.
