This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Day of Science & Careers 2015 is SCI's annual career event. The meeting is designed for Early Career People with a particular focus on providing information about the wide range of careers covered in the chemical, chemistry using and other science based industries. You may be surprised to learn that over 70% of people working in these industries work in SMEs (small and medium enterprises), so there are lots of opportunities beyond the large organisations you may have heard of so far.
