ScotChem Polymer and Soft Materials III

13 June 2024 10:00 - 14 June 2024 16:00, Glasgow, United Kingdom

The University of Strathclyde is hosting the third ScotChem Polymer & Soft Materials Conference, an annual fixture in Scotland’s chemistry research calendar. The conference series covers all areas of related research including polymer chemistry and technology, self-assembly, biointerfaces, and bioinspired and advanced materials. This year, we are expanding to a 2-day event and further aiming to highlight sustainability research, from best lab practices to degradable polymers and upcycling approaches. 

For information on how to sponsor or exhibit at our events please contact

The programme will include invited and contributed talks, poster sessions, and other networking and discussion opportunities. A highlight will be a Civic Reception hosted by the Lord Provost and Glasgow City Council, with complimentary drinks at the prestigious Glasgow City Chambers on Thursday evening, June 13th. 

Abstract submission is open for two categories of contributions: 1) scientific oral and poster presentations, and 2) flash oral presentations highlighting your laboratory’s sustainability best practices (from day-to-day operations to the impact of sustainability awards and certifications). 

Early career researcher (ECR) prizes will be given to the most deserving contributed oral and poster presentations.   

ScotCHEM ECRs registering early may request travel support to help cover the costs of attending both days of the event.
