New Frontiers in Synthetic Chemistry

19 November 2019 09:00-17:00, London, United Kingdom


Introduction
This symposium will showcase recent advances from across synthetic chemistry and discuss what future developments may be in store for the field by bringing together researchers across several career stages from both academia and industry.
 
This event will include several networking opportunities throughout the day, including a wine reception in the evening, providing an opportunity for all delegates to discuss their research with the aim to stimulate future industry and academic collaborations. This meeting is co-organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry and AstraZeneca.

Caring responsibilities

Grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities, for more information please refer to the ‘bursaries’ section on this page.


Supporting inclusion and diversity

The Royal Society of Chemistry is proactive in ensuring all our activities to advance the chemical sciences are accessible and inclusive for a diverse community.
We initiate new activities and projects that will improve the diversity of our community at all stages of the pipeline and we bring together evidence to inform how to make such improvements.

Grants for Carers

 
You can apply for up to a maximum of £1000/year to assist with additional financial costs that you incur for care usually provided by you whilst you attend a chemistry related meeting, conference or workshop or a professional development event.
 
Caring responsibilities are wide and varied, and so each application will be individually assessed, examples of applications that we will consider include:
  • paying for extra home help or nursing care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
  • additional medical/respite care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
  • travel expenses for a relative to travel with you to care for dependents whilst you attend a meeting or event
  • paying for extended hours with a care worker/childminder/play scheme to cover time when you will arrive home later than normal.
 
You are eligible to apply if:
  • you are a chemist
  • you will incur additional caring expenses whilst attending a chemistry-related meeting, conference, event or workshop or a professional development event
  • you will use these funds to cover the cost of care that you usually provide
  • you are based in the UK or Ireland or if not, you will normally have held three years RSC membership (past or current).
