Young Chemist in Industry 2017

Organised by:

SCI's Young Chemists' Panel

AstraZeneca, Macclesfield, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
This meeting is of interest to industrial chemists to discover what their contemporaries are working on in other companies and other areas of research, but also for academic chemists who want to find out the different challenges and focus that working in an industrial setting offers. It also presents 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.
Attendees
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.
