Total Petrochemical Co., Ltd.
donates USD 25 000
to the IUPAC Polymer Division
Samsung Total Petrochemical Co., Ltd. of South Korea (Mr. Hong-Sik
Ko, President) has recently donated USD 25 000 to the IUPAC Polymer
Division (Prof. Jung-Il Jin, Division President). The donation will
be added to the Samsung Total Petrochemical Company Endowment fund that
was originally funded with a USD 125 000 donation from Samsung in 2003.*
The income from the Endowment Fund is used by the Polymer Division to
support excellent researchers and students in polymer science, especially
by providing opportunities for younger researchers and students from
economically disadvantaged countries to attend IUPAC-sponsored conferences.
The Fund is also used to support the educational projects of the Polymer
Division with the intention of making them more accessible to researchers
from economically disadvantaged countries.
