2022 GC3 Virtual Roundtable

Registration is open for the GC3 Virtual Roundtable on March 7-10, 2022

The goal of the GC3 Virtual Roundtable on March 7 – 10, 2022 is to accelerate commercialization of safer, more sustainable chemistries through collaboration across sectors and with key government and not-for-profit partners.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Exchange strategies and best practices for accelerating sustainable chemistry innovation and commercialization.
  • Network to form new partnerships and collaborative projects.
  • Connect with companies across supply chains and sectors.

The GC3 Virtual Roundtable consists of a series of 4 (90-minute) sessions.  Registrants may attend any combination of the sessions that best meets their interests and schedule.
