Analytical Research Forum 2020 (ARF20)

16 June 2020, London, United Kingdom


Phishing Warning
We are aware that some speakers and delegates have been approached by companies claiming to operate on behalf of the Royal Society of Chemistry to book their travel and accommodation for our conferences. Please note that whilst we do sometimes work with accommodation providers in order to facilitate hotel bookings, they would never approach you in the first instance. Details of accommodation providers that we are working with are in the ‘accommodation’ section of this webpage. If you are unsure about an e-mail / phone call you receive, please contact us and do not provide any credit card details or personal information.
Introduction
The Analytical Research Forum (ARF) provides the opportunity for early career researchers from analytical communities to present their work, alongside high profile analytical scientists. This flagship event of the Analytical Division will showcase cutting-edge analytical chemistry and applications to stimulate new research, collaboration and engagement between academia and industry.

Our one day format includes keynotes and invited talks, panel discussions about careers in analytical chemistry plus additional oral contributions selected by the Scientific Committee from the submitted abstracts.

The poster session enables yet more participants to share their work in this exciting interdisciplinary meeting for the analytical science community. In addition to opportunities during lunch and refreshment breaks to view the posters, further networking will be possible during an early evening wine reception.

ARF 2020 is not to be missed and the Scientific Committee look forward to welcoming you to Burlington House, Piccadilly, London on 16 June.
 

Grants for carers

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.

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).These 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.
