Networking symposium for young group leaders in Chemistry

Do you know your fellow assistant professors in the Netherlands? What are they working on? Are you interested in collaborating with them? Where will you apply for your next round of funding? The NextGenChem@NL 2019 symposium aims to bring together the future group leaders in chemistry. For the fifth time in the Netherlands, we are organizing a meeting specifically targeted to young faculty (assistant professors, tenure trackers, VENI/VIDI/ERC-stg laureates). Interested? Register here.

What to expect?
A scientific meeting where participants will have an opportunity to briefly present his/her research, with ample time for discussion. A creative environment to exchange scientific ideas and career experiences. During the afternoon an interactive session will be held to discuss strategies to organize a starting research group (more details will follow). At the end of the symposium, there will be time for networking within a social setting (diner included).

In short, a symposium full of opportunities to create and strengthen the ties with your colleagues in the field.
