On Friday, 3 July 2020, the European Chemical Society held its very first online webinar to celebrate 50 years since the foundation of the Federation of European Chemical Societies (FECS), which is today known as EuChemS.
The rich, diverse and entertaining programme included the premiere of the first EuChemS video, speeches from 17 live speakers, many photographs from the past years of EuChemS, an original international video with congratulations in different languages prepared by the EYCN – European Young Chemists’ Network. The fact that it was organised online did not stop the panellists from blowing out the candles together (from a virtual cake) and reading all the wonderful birthday cards that were sent from around the world.
In case you were not able to join us in person, don’t worry – the event was recorded and is available on the EuChemS YouTube channel and you can subscribe to stay up to date with the videos we will be posting!
