The France Excellence summer school 2019 dedicated to "Green & Sustainable Chemistry " will be held from July 2 to July 20 at the University of Strasbourg in the Chemistry Department (Faculty of Chemistry), located within Strasbourg, nearby the Old Medieval City (see http://www.en.strasbourg.eu/en/discover-the-city/) and nearby the European Institutions (see http://www.en.strasbourg.eu/en/europe-international/european-capital/).    

Created in the XVIth century (1538 and 1621), the University of Strasbourg, has hosted numerous prestigious professors and researchers, especially in Chemistry. L Pasteur, A. Baeyer, E. Fischer, H. Staudinger are among the most famous, all being awarded Nobel prices in Chemistry.  The Chemistry Department is still hosting 3 active Nobel prices (JM Lehn, M Karplus, JP Sauvage)
