The European Young Chemists’ Network (EYCN) is the younger members division of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS). The Network brings together young chemists, less than 35 years old, within the EuCheMS framework. During the congress a dedicated EYCN program will be developed including:
  • Career Days Program, CV-Clinic and Networking Activities, EYCN Career Days aims to bring soft skills to European young chemists by organizing a satellite event during the Congress. These “EYCN Career Days” will be a full part of the congress program. It will be designed in order to advise young chemists about soft skills training needed for a successful career, including lectures about hot topics in chemistry, the art of scientific writing and communicating chemistry, leadership workshops, time management or research funding in Europe.
  • European Young Chemist Award (EYCA) intended to honor and encourage younger chemists whose current research displays a high level of excellence and distinction. It seeks to recognize and reward younger chemists of exceptional ability who show promise for substantial future achievements in chemistry-related research fields.
  • Fun chemistry: An example of extraordinary chemistry as seen in our daily life.
  • Exchange program: Together with the ACS Young Chemists Committee, EYCN will organize an exchange program for American young chemists. This Young Chemists Crossing Borders program is the ideal platform to connect with other young chemists across the globe.
