Young Chemist in Industry 2014 Nov 19 2014
Meeting: United Kingdom [in English]

This meeting is of interest to industrial chemists who can discover what their contemporaries do in other branches of the industry, through offering a window into other areas of research, and is a superb opportunity for younger chemists to showcase their industrial research to an external audience.

Prizes will be awarded for the best talk and runners-up. In addition, a lecture from a leading industrial chemist will conclude the proceedings.

This meeting is aimed at chemists working in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology or agrochemical sector and would provide them with a unique opportunity to discover what their contemporaries do in other branches of the industry. The meeting would also appeal to graduates and post-graduates with a background in organic chemistry.
