A multi-stakeholder think tank

“The Helsinki Chemicals Forum annually brings together new and old contacts to debate some of the thorniest issues in chemicals management. From regulatory efficacy to emerging scientific and technological issues to corporate social responsibility, its panel debates are significant multi-stakeholder think tanks providing businesses, regulators, NGOs and others with a space to think about the bigger picture and go home with a clearer understanding of how to position their organisations.” says Mamta Patel, CEO & Co-Founder of Chemical Watch on the aims and operations of the forum.

We were delighted to have Mamta moderating the panel discussion on 2018.


Why HCF – Just ask our participants

“Helsinki Chemicals Forum offers a great opportunity to all professionals to exchange out of the box in high level presentations, as well as during the panels and outside the main hall with colleagues on fundamental questions of safe chemicals handling, not necessarily leading to immediate action or implementation but creating a better holistic understanding of chemicals management and its consequences.”
– Dr. Erika Kunz,
Global Product Stewardship, Head of Global Registration and Evaluation of Chemicals, Clariant, Germany


Why travel to congresses?

“I travel a lot – for a scientist, it’s the best way to keep abreast of the field. It allows us to develop new concepts based on personal chemistry, by meeting people face to face“, says Howy Jacobs, Professor in molecular biology. Watch Howy’s tips and read the full article.
