The Hungary ACS International Chemical Sciences Chapter began operations in 2002. ACS-HC is a premier non-profit scientific body facilitating the interaction among industry and academic professionals in chemistry and related fields in Hungary and Europe. ACS-HC promotes dissemination of chemistry and associated fields to facilitate interfacing between the public and academia / industry; provides forums to address challenges in chemistry and related fields and utilizes the experience and networks of the chapter members coming from industry, academia, and regulatory bodies.
