It will be held at the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ) in Heidelberg, from Sept. 30 to Oct 2.
Core aspects of this conference are poster presentations and short talks by chemists and chemical scientists, engineers and technologists. Chemical science, engineering and technology will be interpreted broadly. This European showcase of chemical
research and R&D will include both fundamental or "blue skies" research as well as more applied, strategic and industrial chemistry. The event has a competition for poster prizes up to GBP 500.
One principal aim is to unite European younger chemists who are working in all aspects of research and R&D, not only from the EU
but also from other European countries. We want to encourage greater interaction, networking, novel collaborations and try to enhance European understanding and harmony.
Some keynote talks are presented by Nobel Laureates, namely Jean-Marie Lehn and Sir Harry Kroto, as well as by BASF's Scientific Director Stefan Marcinowski. A visit to the BASF production site in Ludwigshafen is on our schedule. One very special highlight will be a pyrotechnics lecture by Malcom Armstrong, the special effects man of some James Bond movies,
during our farewell evening.
