Chemistry Rediscovered – Playing with chemical reactions

To all the final participants of the Video Contest Chemistry Rediscovered – Playing with chemical reactions,

On behalf of the European Young Chemists’Network (EYCN), the younger members division of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS), we are very thankful for your participation in this first edition of the European video contest – Chemistry Rediscovered. We received a total of 15 amazing videos and experimental protocols, from 8 participant countries, and the quality and originality of all projects exceeded all expectations for this inaugural edition. It was a pleasure to watch every single one of them! Even though it was tremendously difficult for us to evaluate such a competitive contest, we finally managed to choose the best 5 teams.

Please find below the overall classification of this competition.

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.

4th Royal Society of Chemistry Early Career Symposium 

Hosted by the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Early Career Network and The University of Strathclyde, this symposium aims to bring early-career chemists from all disciplines and sectors together to connect the next generation of leaders in the chemical sciences. With four parallel sessions spread over two days and a host of world class speakers confirmed, ECS2016 delegates can expect to see the latest advances in chemical research, learn from emerging leaders in the field and network with their peers in a relaxed environment.

Abstracts for both oral and poster presentation are welcome for all of our four sessions from academic and industrial chemists taking the first steps in their careers.


11th Delegates Assembly

In April 2016 the 11th delegate assembly was held in Guimaraes, Portugal. The event saw representatives from 16 different European countries meet to discuss the work by young chemists from the past year.
