Synopsis
This annual one day meeting, now in its 20th year provides a unique opportunity for younger chemists to showcase their industrial research to an external audience. This meeting is of particular 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. Prizes will be awarded for the best talk and two runners-up, as judged by the organising committee. In addition to the participants' lectures, a lecture from an experienced, high profile industrial figure will conclude the proceedings.
Attendees

Who should attend?

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.
