The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

On 21 April, Prof. Em­manuel Si­na­gra of­fi­cially took over the pres­i­dency of Euro­pean Chem­istry The­matic Net­work at the Gen­eral Assem­bly 2018, which was held at the Univer­sity of Chem­istry and Tech­nol­ogy in Prague. This is the nor­mal suc­ces­sion after he spent one year as pres­i­dent-elect.

ECTNA, a non-profit mak­ing as­so­ci­a­tion, is an out­come of six years (1996-2002) of net­work­ing ac­tiv­ity. The As­so­ci­a­tion was cre­ated to pro­vide a sus­tain­able fu­ture for the Euro­pean Chem­istry The­matic Net­work. The ob­jec­tives of the as­so­ci­a­tion in­clude the en­hance­ment of qual­ity in chem­istry de­grees and to pro­vide a panEuro­pean frame­work for first cy­cle chem­istry de­grees.

The Univer­sity of Malta is one of over 100 mem­bers of the as­so­ci­a­tion from 30 dif­fer­ent Euro­pean coun­tries and with as­so­ciate mem­bers world­wide. Mem­bers in­clude higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions and na­tional chem­i­cal so­ci­eties.

Prof. Si­na­gra’s aims for his three­year pres­i­dency are to rekin­dle ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion and to se­cure funds for ex­ist­ing and fu­ture pro­grammes of the Net­work.
