Webinar - Chemists in Industry across Borders | January 23, 2024

In this joint SCI Young Chemist' Panel and EFMC Young Scientists Network collaboration, we will explore the journeys of five early-career researchers working abroad in industry.

Join our open panel discussion round table to tackle topics such as relocation support, cultural integration, and advice on how to transition from academia into industry and accelerate your career trajectory.

This free webinar will provide delegates an open forum to pitch questions to our diverse speaker line-up, while learning useful tips and tricks to successfully prepare for careers abroad.
