Message from the Chair

Dr Ally Hughes


The SCI Scotland Group has a diverse membership, which is reflective of the industry present in Scotland, where the chemical sciences sector accounts for 17% of Scotland’s total exports.

Throughout the year the Scotland group supports and organises a range of events, from the successful ‘Day of Science and Careers’ to our PhD student writing competition and more specialised local conferences. We also organise the prestigious Tennant Award and Lister Memorial lectures, recognising eminent scientists working in the chemical sciences. We aim to foster links between employees within the science sector and academia alike, supporting and providing events for students and early career researchers in addition to those more established in their fields.

We look forward to welcoming more members to the SCI Scotland Group and to our events!
