The Helsinki Chemicals Forum 2021 conference as a virtual event

The Helsinki Chemicals Forum 2021 conference will be organized as a virtual event instead of a physical one. The decision is due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic situation and international travel restrictions, that greatly affect the possibility of international visitors to participate in the event. The Helsinki Chemicals Forum will take place on 27 and 28 April 2021 and registration for the event has started.

As before, the programme of 2021 HCF is built around keynote introductory speeches and five discussion panels. In total 35 top class speakers from EU and third countries will take part. The five topics that are relevant to all practitioners of chemicals regulation are the forthcoming ICCM-5, green chemicals policy, transparency & risk communication, safer substitution and spotlight on textiles. UNEP, the European Commission, ECHA, OECD and Chemical Watch will moderate these panels. The host of the event will be Irene van Luijken, Cefic Project Director.

Other simultaneous events i.e. the international forest industry event PulPaper and chemical and bioindustry ChemBio Finland will also offer their programme content online. Virtual conferences are a great opportunity to expand the audience of the event, as it makes it easier for participants from all over the world to participate.
