Our world is changing - fast. To adequately address the challenges our planet and our societies are facing, it is paramount to address environmental problems everywhere and include everybody in the development of solutions. The Global Greenchem Innovation and Network Program focuses on bringing green chemistry knowledge into every corner of the world, and let innovations thrive on these seeds. 

Knowledge and innovation are powerful together, but they need to find traction to be translated into real applications. The Yale-UNIDO Global Greenchem Accelerator focuses on exactly that: identifying promising green chemistry technologies from around the world, bringing them into the limelight with necessary mentorship, valuable expert knowledge, and by leveraging financial support. The program will be running in our 6 partnering countries: Indonesia, Jordan, Peru, Serbia, Uganda, and Ukraine. The respective National Cleaner Production Centers -NCPCs are the implementing institutions on the ground and will be supported by Yale, UNIDO and GEF.

The Global Greenchem ACCELERATOR will run in 3 consecutive cycles, starting in 2025! 

The first call for applications will open in late 2024/early 2025, and convert Jakarta, Amman, Lima, Belgrade, Kampala and Kyiv into true hubs of Green Chemistry Innovation. 

Stay tuned, be creative, innovate!
