#RSCPosterLive – The #RSCPoster Conference Live Webinars

2 March 2021 11:00-19:00, United Kingdom

The #RSCPoster Twitter Conference ( is an annual virtual event, bringing together the global chemistry community to network with peers, share their research and engage in scientific debate. #RSCPoster subjects cover the entire breadth of the chemical sciences and related topics.

This year, we’re introducing #RSCPosterLive, a series of webinars held alongside the event at which we’re discussing some of the important issues faced by chemical scientists throughout their career. These webinars will be open to everyone – registration is free via the 'Book Now' link.

(Please note, registering for the webinars will not automatically register you to present a poster at #RSCPoster and vice versa. If you would like to register to present a poster at #RSCPoster, please see the link in the top right corner)

For the 2021 event, the webinar schedule will be as follows:
11:00 UTC 2 March – Choosing Your Supervisor
12:00 UTC 2 March – #RSCPoster Twitter Conference Opens - head to Twitter to see the first posters and upload yours!
14:00 UTC 2 March – Pathways to Professor
18:00 UTC 2 March – Mental health in Chemical Science

We have tried to spread the sessions across timezones, however we understand that not everyone will be able to make these timeslots. We will send all registered attendees a link to the recorded webinar following the event, therefore please do register even if you are unable to make the session. If you won’t be able to attend the live webinar but have a specific question you would like to ask our panellists, you may send this in to in advance, and this will be passed on to the session hosts to ask at each Q & A.
