Throughout the years, SIOC has made an effort to establish worldwide academic contacts with universities and research institutions. Some 5,000 scientists and scholars from all over the world have paid visits to SIOC since its founding, including 9 Nobel laureates in Chemistry. In return, SIOC has sent more than 1,300 short-term visiting scholars abroad. As a principal sponsor, SIOC has successfully organized around thirty international and bilateral academic conferences, including two series sponsored by IUPAC.
Facing the trend of globalization, the Institute is putting increasing emphasis on international and regional scientific cooperation. Building upon its ongoing collaborative projects, contract research programs and joint labs with foreign firms and academic institutions, SIOC is seeking more substantial and sizable joint scientific projects.
