The aim is ‘to promote education and training in thermal analysis and calorimetry’ and

1. to update, broaden and intensify the educational level of professionals in the field of thermal analysis.
2. to broaden the curriculum in institutions of higher education to include the theory and practical applications of thermal analysis.
3. to organise symposia/workshops to achieve these aims.


1. Advising each national society to have at least one thermal education group. They should undertake at least one activity like
   workshop/symposium etc during their annual/biennial event if they are nor organising such event.
2. Celebrating international year of chemistry through such societies.
3. Organising an education symposium during the next ICTAC.
4. Reviewing books on thermal analysis to be put on web.
5. Holding a full session on thermal education in the ESTAC as well.
6. Coordinating with universities etc. to broaden the curriculum (inclusion of theory and practice of TA)
