Event description

Description

As part of the 47th IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) World Chemistry Congress and for the centenary of IUPAC, the French Young Chemists Network organizes an evening dedicated to international early career chemists: YOU PACK for Young Chemists in Politics. This event will enable casual exchanges and discussions on the relevance and the key role of chemistry in our current world, life and environment.

As French Young Chemists Network, we believe that the younger generation of scientist has a central role to tackle the challenges to come to build a more sustainable future, and we have conceived this event to insist on their role as chemists, not only “at the bench” but also as citizens in their respective countries. We hope that this evening will inspire and motivate the younger generation to take up the difficult but important challenges arising at a global scale.

Two distinguished guests of honor will share during that evening their experiences.

- Pr. Zhenan BAO, professor of Chemical engineering and material science at Stanford University (USA), laureate of the 2017 l’Oréal-UNESCO award for women in Science.

- Pr. Cédric VILLANI, former director of the Institut Poincaré in Paris (France) and current French parliament member, Fields Medal Laureate 2010.

What perspectives for the years to come at a global scale? What is their message to the next generation of scientists and how do they perceive the role of young chemists?

Reciprocally, what are the expectations and views on the future of early career chemists? How does these vary at a global scale?

The exchange will then carry on in a convivial atmosphere with a prestigious cocktail with all participants.

Aiming at sharing and exchanging on these topics with a large younger scientific community, we cordially invite every early career scientists (below 35) interested to participate to this event.

YOU PACK for Young Chemists in Politics will take place at “La Maison de la Chimie”, 28 rue Saint-Dominique (Paris), on Wednesday, July 10th, from 18.30.
