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. As for previous meetings, experimentalists rather than managers are encouraged to speak. 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. Attendees will be able to submit questions during the presentations and participate in voting for their favourite talk.
