Chemical Science Symposium 2021: Biohybrid Approaches to Sustainable Energy Conversion

13 - 15 September 2021, United Kingdom, United Kingdom

This virtual meeting is the next iteration in the Chemical Science symposia series hosted by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Under the banner of our flagship diamond open access journal, Chemical Science, we’ll be shining a spotlight on cutting-edge chemistry research and giving it the sort of attention that drives scientific progress and makes a difference.

We warmly invite you to join us online for the third Chemical Science symposium, and look forward to welcoming you to the discussion.

About the symposium

Leading chemical and biological science researchers and emerging investigators from a broad range of backgrounds will come together to explore and celebrate the theme of the 2021 symposium: Biohybrid Approaches to Sustainable Energy Conversion.

The invited speakers for this symposium will represent the following topic areas:
  • Microbial/living cell-hybrid approaches
  • Protein-hybrid approaches
  • Bio-inspired approaches
The scientific programme of talks will be complemented by online networking opportunities and digital poster sessions.
Abstract Submission

Poster Abstracts - Now open

Submit your poster abstract by 02 August 2021. Posters are displayed throughout the meeting and a poster session is held on the first evening.

The poster can contain text, images, videos and audio recordings, and can include as much detail as you require as content boxes within the templates are not limited to size. You will also have access to video tutorials, showing you how you can create your poster in the platform, and access to email support with the poster platform if you have an specific questions. ​
