The 2020 edition of #RSCPoster, the virtual chemistry poster competition, came to an end today at midday UK time, after 24 straight hours of tweeting. If you missed it don't worry, as we've pulled out some of the best bits for you.
#RSCPoster is a Twitter poster conference that you can attend from anywhere – whether that's from your office, from your bed, or on the move. This unique format means it attracts participants from all over the world. It's also a way for participants to receive almost instant feedback on their work – including questions, suggestions, and validation of their methods.
Over 700 delegates registered to share their posters
There were more than 5,000 total tweets under the hashtag #RSCPoster
Participants attended from over 55 countries
The competition winners will be announced next week.
These are some of our best-performing posters from the day – those that received a high number of likes and retweets.
A bright future for hydrogen
Here we go again!
NEON can deny, oops I mean no-one can deny Hydrogen's BRIGHT future for renewable energy!
The heart and soul of #RSCPoster is the community interactions – questions asked and answered, praise given, and relationships built with fellow researchers.
Very nice poster. Liking the neon. How do you dispose of the fuel cells after they are spent? How long can they be cycled for, would a hydrogen fuel cell car last longer than a traditional petrol/diesel? #RSCPosterpic.twitter.com/xyaNiBxasU
The point made on inclusivity is of paramount importance. Some can’t afford to travel or are too junior to present. This is a unique opportunity to be engaged no matter what. Hope others can be inspired. 😉thank you @RoySocChem for #RSCPoster
