Goals of the Young Scientist Symposium

Since its first edition in 2008, the Young Scientist Symposium has pursued three main goals:

  • Offering young researchers (mainly PhD students and postdocs), working in chemistry and biology, the opportunity to present their work in animated oral or poster presentation sessions.
  •  Encouraging interdisciplinary and international communication between young researchers to facilitate collaborative research, networking, and knowledge transfer, offering two inspiring keynote lectures of established, internationally recognized scientists.
  •  Informing young researchers about different career options, by organizing a career session with three scientific PhD graduates, invited to speak about their career in e.g. academia, industries, scientific communications or other alternative career paths.
