Materials chemistry poster symposium

17 November 2022, London, United Kingdom

The RSC Materials Chemistry Communities flagship event for early career researchers returns to an in-person event for 2022.

As one of the RSC Materials Chemistry Communities flagship events, this poster symposium brings together outstanding PhD students and researchers at the start of their career in industry and provides a fantastic opportunity for them to showcase their research, and network with peers, leading academics, and industrial chemists.
Each presenter will give a short flash talk and present their posters in a poster session, held at the RSC’s facilities at Burlington House, London.

On the day, our judges will recognise the two best posters, who will win free registration to the 16th International conference on materials chemistry (MC16).

Attendees of the event will also be able to vote for their favourite poster of the event, which will win a prize, sponsored by the Journal of Materials Chemistry, of a gift voucher of £200 to be applied against RSC Materials Science book.
