Chemistry Rediscovered (Update 22.05.2017)

To all the final participants of the Video Contest “Chemistry Rediscovered”.

First of all, we want to acknowledge all of your effort and dedication in participating in this competition. We have been pleasantly surprised by the quality and originality of all projects, which hugely exceeded expectations for this inaugural edition.

However, we regret to inform you that the winners of the competition will not be announced today. Winners will instead be announced by 31st May 2017 at the latest.

We are sorry and disappointed for the delay, which is due to our thorough evaluation of the tremendous number of highly competitive entries.

We hope that you can understand this short delay, it being our first edition of the competition, and we will take these learnings to ensure it will not happen again in the future.

What is the EYCN?

The European Young Chemists’ Network is the young division of EuCheMS. Every chemist under the age of 35 that belongs to any of our fellow societies becomes, automatically, a member of the EYCN.

EYCN was founded in 2006 after Jens Breffke and Csaba Janaky had the idea of reuniting european young chemists during the 1st European Chemistry Conference in Budapest.

EYCN’s goal is to promote Chemistry in Europe, as well as to give new educational and networking opportunities to students and professionals. We promote several awards in different conferences, organize Career Days to improve soft-skills and collaborate in a variety of exchange programs to promote the mobility of our members. To do all this, we partner with powerful industries as well as with other young scientific societies around the world.
