The National Conference for Science Technicians (NCST) celebrates technical staff and their vital contribution to the sciences, as well as the Technician Commitment. Bringing together attendees from across the chemical sciences, the conference offers the opportunity to hear about how you can broaden your career and encourage the next generation of technicians. You’ll also be able to network with colleagues and hear from inspirational speakers for talks centred around our theme of career pathways, including:

We’re featuring inspiring speakers and professional development specialists from across the technical community, including:
  • Emily Thorpe, Technical Training Manager, MI Talent

In the afternoon, in-person delegates have the option to choose their preferred parallel session from the following:
  • Recognition for technicians through research authorship

  • How job progression structure, such as RSC accredited schemes, can support technical staff 
Online attendees will be presented with the following independent workshop:
  • Success using the RSC and other pathways as a technician
The conference is free to attend and open to chemical science technicians in any sector, and you don’t have to be a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry to attend. However, places are limited, so be sure to register soon to guarantee your place.
