Who is presenting

overview of all plenary speakers

We want to highlight the diversity of chemical research as well as the diversity of the community of chemists itself and the benefits we can harvest from this diversity. Both industry and academia are able to benefit from great diversity, as it leads to more creativity and innovation, and occurring issues can be approached from different perspectives.
Therefore, we have decided to invite speakers from a broad variety of research areas and backgrounds for the 2nd Young Chemists Summit in 2024.
