Participants to the previous editions of the Young Investigator Workshop

Young Investigator Workshop Nominees

The EuCheMS Division of Organic Chemistry hallmark activity is the Young Investigator Workshop (YIW) to further promote and recognize academic excellence in organic chemistry within (and outside) Europe. This annual event is deliberately held close to either the EuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC) or the European Symposium on Organic Chemistry (ESOC) as we encourage the attendees of the YIW to attend these events. For the YIW workshops | each EuCheMS member society nominates up to two young investigators identified as rising stars in their respective country. Participation in the workshop is typically limited to 30 attendees | as this restricted number ensures the highest quality output as well as interactive exchanges between participants.
