SCI’s Fine Chemicals group and SCI’s Young Chemists’ Panel
Vertex pharmaceuticals, UK
Following the success of the Young chemist in industry event, we are launching a sister award and meeting for a Chemist in Industry. Solving chemistry problems is central to so many industries and it is the people in the laboratories who are making this happen. This is a meeting to celebrate and recognise that community.
This one-day meeting will be of interest to chemists working in different chemical industries (e.g. pharmaceutical, catalysis, agrochemical). Particularly laboratory-based scientists or technical experts (for example, computational chemists) with several years' industry experience. Perhaps you are in a second or third role in industry. It presents a superb opportunity for chemists to showcase the relevance of chemistry to industrial research. It will also provide an opportunity for attendees to develop their CV with presentation and networking skills opportunities. Prizes will be awarded for the best talk and runners-up.
This one-day meeting will be of interest to chemists working in different chemical industries (pharmaceutical, catalysis, agrochemical). It presents an opportunity to learn about how new chemistry methodology and technology is being developed and used in different industries.
We are inviting talks from speakers from across the chemical industry (eg pharmaceutical, fine chemicals, materials, catalysis, agrochemical). Talks should be 30 minutes in length and present the relevance of chemistry to problem solving in industrial applications. They should be from experienced laboratory-based scientists who have direct involvement in the work described.
Please download an abstract template here and send an abstract (100 words max) with the subject line “Chemist in Industry - abstract submission”, along with a title, a scheme or figure if applicable and a very brief career history to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 30 June 2023
