Young Chemist in Industry 2015

Organised by:

SCI's Young Chemists' Panel

Sygnature Discovery, BioCity, Nottingham, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


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.


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.
