Shell UK chairman James Smith will be in Aberdeen to deliver a lunchtime lecture at the University of Aberdeen/The Robert Gordon University Chemistry Week 2007 celebration.

Chemistry Week is a national event organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Held every two years, the aim is to promote a positive image of chemistry and increase public understanding of the importance of chemical science in our everyday lives.

This year’s theme has been chosen to support the RSC’s energy and transport campaign, Fuelling the Future, with a particular emphasis on how chemistry offers positive solutions to the energy challenges that travel (and transport) are facing today.

It is on Friday, November 9, that Smith will deliver his presentation, Energy and Climate Change, to guests.

Aberdeen is Smith’s alma mater. He graduated from the university in 1973 with a first-class honours degree in physics. He subsequently qualified as a chartered accountant while working with Ernst & Young in Edinburgh and, before joining Shell in 1983, worked in the energy division of Andersen Consulting in London. and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan.
