Looking to find out more about EuChemS, talk to our team and get involved? Join us at our stand, located in the exhibition hall near the entrance to the Plenary Sessions Auditorium.
We are also pleased to invite you to come and chat at our stand with Professor Reiner Salzer, one of the awardees of the EuChemS Award for Service 2018 and project leader of the 3rd European Employability Survey for Chemists; and Professor Jan Mehlich, who has played a central role in developing the upcoming EuChemS online course on Chemistry and Ethics.
Find us at our sessions too!
- Our Science Communication and Policy Officer, Alex Schiphorst will be talking alongside Susan M. Vickers from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Karin J. Schmitz from the German Chemical Society (GDCh) and Sue R. Morrissey from the American Chemical Society (ACS) for a Global Communications Training Session that will explore the different ways of communicating science to different audiences, as well as offer concrete training tips and offer participants an interactive go at polishing their own communication skills. The
session will be moderated by Menno de Waal, member of the RSC and the EYCN.
When? Monday 27 August, 11:00-13:00
Where? Room 4B
Why join? This session will allow participants to hone their communication skills, receive feedback, and learn from communication experts how to efficiently communicate their research to different audiences!
- EuChemS General Secretary Nineta Hrastelj will be talking alongside the Award for Service Awardee Professor Reiner Salzer, EuChemS Vice-President David Cole-Hamilton, and LaTrease Garrison, Executive Vice President, Education at the American Chemical Society (ACS), for a session moderated by Rigoberto Hernandez, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore. The session, entitled Education and Empowering the Future Global Workforce, addressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, will examine more precisely the Goals numbers 4 and 17, on Quality Education and Partnerships for the Goals. Nineta will then focus on the challenges of Open Education.
When? Tuesday 28 August, 13:00-14:30
Where? Room 4B
Why join? Educational programmes need to convey more than knowledge and developing the skills and abilities to foster solutions for scientifically, politically and economically complex needs has become crucial in an increasingly global environment. Participants will be given the chance to examine the complex questions surrounding educational standards, performance expectations, and assessments fostering the use of evidence-based practices, as well as grasp the intricacies of open science challenges, (global) quality of university education, ethics and industry-academia interactions.
- Join Nineta Hrastelj, EuChemS General Secretary for her talk at the EYCN session where she will look at European funding: Sharing an evaluator’s knowledge, view and experience.
When? Thursday 30 August, 11:30-12:00
Where? Room 12
Why join? Intending on submitting a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) proposal? Join this session to hear what an evaluator is looking for, how the evaluation processes work, and how to make sure your project has what it needs to make it!
