America International Group Events

Innovation Day

Since 2004, Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) America International Division has hosted Innovation Day, featuring the awarding of the SCI Gordon E. Moore and Perkin Medals each Autumn.

Innovation Day is designed to promote early career innovation. The event brings together early career scientists and industry leaders to consider solutions to meeting the most pressing needs of the public.

The event runs over two days. The conference opens in the afternoon with an optional workshop for early arrivers, an opening reception, and a dinner with a featured speaker.

On the second day an opening plenary is followed by a number of contemporaneous discussion groups and a poster session.  The Gordon E Moore medal winner receives the medal at lunch and gives an address on his or her work.  Additional discussion groups are held in the afternoon followed by a closing reception.

Perkin Medal Dinner: The Perkin Medallist gives an address at a dinner in his or her honour the evening of day two.

Further information on past Innovation Days is available here.

There are currently no events planned by this group.
