Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. See program details.

Raising Next-Generation Entrepreneurs towards a Globally Sustainable Future

  • This event has passed.

The symposium is a joint venture between the ACS Young Chemists Committee (@ycc_acs) and the International Younger Chemists Network (@IntlYoungerChem). It will spotlight entrepreneurial activities across the chemical sciences that have been successfully translated from the bench to the market. Emphasis will be given to the translation of prominent technologies into innovative materials, platforms, devices and processes with societal, industrial and commercial value. The symposium will reunite a great line-up of successful, young international innovators and entrepreneurs that will share insights, advice, and stimulate the entrepreneurial spirit and creative thinking among early career chemists, as well as highlight the key role of chemistry and closely-related sciences in addressing societal challenges by pursuing innovative solutions.
