The article presents a look at future developments in teaching chemistry in Europe. In the near future the teaching of chemistry in Europe will be affected by a series of fundamental changes arising from adoption of common European teaching goals and of a European credit-transfer system. It is well known that the final objective is to produce a system in which equivalent and readily comparable degrees are awarded within Europe, to facilitate the mobility of students and teachers and to make the recognition of degrees easier.
