The Centre of Excellence for Research in Sustainable Chemistry (CERSusChem) is an initiative of researchers at the Chemistry Department of the Federal University of São Carlos, aiming to promote the development and implementation of green and sustainable chemistry and related technologies. The Centre, is formed by 18 faculty members of 5 different Public Universities (UFSCar UNICAMP, USP-Ribeirão Preto, UNESP and UFSC), all of them with ongoing projects in the area herein proposed and with well-established national and international research collaborations. The expertise in the area by this team has allowed a continuous work productional the state of the art and justifies the creation of the Centre. The members of the CERSusChem have come together and defined a series of challenges, over-arching goals as long-term directions of research and integrative activities of the Centre. The proposal features novel strategies from across pharma, biotech and academia to meet current challenges in organic synthesis focused in the principles of sustainable chemistry, such as solvent free approach or bio- solvents; merging organocatalysis and multicomponent reactions; nanomaterials; biocatalysis; and new models for protein ligand assays. The education and knowledge dissemination action plan encompasses changeling approaches focused in all segment of society. A special attention will be given in producing experimental training focused in qualified industry worker and secondary school teacher. The dissemination of knowledge will be fulfilled by the use of suitable tools such as web, games, TV, workshops, courses, visit, video lectures and open-house. Association with Science communication experts will furnish this diversity of tools including educational materials for basic and intermediate students. The technology transfer is an integrated part of this proposal and a master goal of this Centre. To meet this aim collaborative work with industrial partner will be pursued in a flexible manner in order to respond to our partners' necessities. The collaborative enterprise will be carried out with both public and productive sectors, particularly national and international pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology industry, and research institutions dedicated to human health.
