About NextGenChem@NL

Join us at NextGenChem@NL, a symposium designed specifically for young group leaders working in and interfacing with chemistry.

As research becomes increasingly interdisciplinary, many young researchers face challenges in building and funding their research programs, assembling effective teams, and finding collaborators from industry. The NextGenChem@NL symposium aims to address these challenges by bringing together assistant professors, tenure trackers, and VENI/VIDI/ERC-StG laureates to build a stronger network, receive mentoring, and develop a toolbox for managing and funding interdisciplinary teams.

The symposium includes a scientific meeting where participants will have the opportunity to briefly present their research, exchange scientific ideas and career experiences with peers and experienced researchers, attend keynote lectures by role models, and join a panel discussion. 

The 2024 edition of NextGenChem@NL will take place on the 29th and 30th of August in Nijmegen. The symposium includes dinner, lunch and drinks during the networking events, and with thanks to our sponsors: free of charge. Please see our program for more details.

If you are a young group leader working in chemistry or an adjacent field, or a more experienced researcher interested in mentoring younger colleagues, we invite you to join us at NextGenChem@NL 2024. This is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with fellow assistant professors in the Netherlands, build a stronger interdisciplinary network, and explore funding opportunities.
