The dialogue with society and politics is most important to the Platform Chemistry. The platform presents itself as a dialogue partner for politics, media, economy and industry. Through its member societies, the Platform Chemistry has an extensive network of about 3000 experts at its disposal.

Another priority is the improvement of the public reception of chemistry as a fundamental future-oriented science and as an important contributor to our society. The Platform Chemistry would like to arouse enthusiasm among children and young people for science and chemistry in particular. Promotion of young scientists at all levels of education, from pre-school to junior professors is therefore a top priority.

Through a broad-based debate and the provision of expert knowledge, the platform aims to inform the interested public about chemical topics and the importance of chemistry in everyday life.
