An extensive suite of educational and training resources have been created by the CHEM21 project to promote the uptake and application of green and sustainable methodologies in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals. They include a bespoke online learning platform containing free, shareable and interactive material suitable for distance learning; easy to use tools and guides that can be readily embedded into everyday practice; and a new RSC text book available in both print and electronic format. These initiatives were specifically designed to result in the elaboration of an educational program to train both students and those currently working within the industry. The involvement of EFPIA partners in their development has ensured that the training materials and methods developed have practical applicability within the medicinal and process chemist community. The research originated by the CHEM21 project has also informed the development of the educational and training material and provided case studies to exemplify the benefits of adopting sustainable chemistry in medicinal and process chemistry.
