European chemists working in Europe or abroad and chemists from everywhere based in Europe can now answer to the 2nd Employment Survey for European Chemists.
ESEC2, which is completely anonymous, will be accessible at https://www.euchems.eu/esec2/ from 1 March until 31 March 2017, and its main objective is to create a clear snapshot of the chemistry labour market. This snapshot will allow an analysis of educational offer and labour market needs, gender balance, salary differences, etc. As the situation of chemistry greatly differs from country to country (as the previous iteration of this survey shows) it is important that enough specific information from all European countries is gathered in order to allow a detailed country-level analysis. Having such a level of detail will be in the best interest of European employees, employers, and universities.
ESEC2 is being run by the European Chemistry Thematic Network Association (ECTN) and by the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuChemS).
