About Us

Our first conference for young chemists in Austria, the Young Chemists Summit, will be held from the 21st until the 23rd of September 2020 online. Besides plenary lectures, poster sessions and oral presentations from PhD students, we are also organizing soft and hard-skill workshops, a panel discussion from alumni and an industry speed dating, where participants can get in contact with local industry partners.

With this congress we want to bridge the gap between students, industry and universities. In our numerous events and successful collaborations with industrial partners over the last years, we noticed the importance and growing interest in this active exchange.
