Dear EYCN Delegates,

Welcome to the September edition of the EYCN newsletter.

EYCN promotes actions aiming to engage and involve more young chemists in activities such as conferences, meetings, and events that have chemistry as central subject.

After the news section, you will find the events that will take place in the following months.  See below for more details.
1. Young Chemists' Crossing Boarders: In August, European and American young chemists took part in an exchange program in Boston, USA. Young chemists from across Europe were chosen for their academic excellence and engagement within the community of chemical sciences to represent the new generation of European scientists (Sophie Carenco, France; Grégory Chatel, France; Thomas McGlone, UK; Madeline Kavanagh, UK; Sebastian Sobottka, Germany; Bart Verbraeken, Belgium).  During their stay, the group participated in committee meetings of the YCC, attended lectures, seminars and workshops. They were also invited to present their ongoing research at a number of events. See below for pictures from this great collaborative event. 

2.If you haven't done so already, please make sure you have sent the names of the delegates representing your national younger members society to the networks team. This is important so that the delegates receive all relevant material before the next Delegates Assembly. 

3. On the 22nd September you are invited to to workshop "Protecting Endangered Elements", chaired my MEP Ian Duncan. The workshop, in Brussels, will explore the importance of raw materials in our everyday life. There will be oppertunity for discussion on what chemists can do to prevent the scarcity of these elements. If you would like to learn more, please see the programme here or register here.

4. If you are free on the 25th September, why not attend Researchers Night, an event for scientific researchers across Europe. Take a photo of yourself at the event and post it on Facebook or Twitter using #EYCNpics. If you can’t make the event it would be great to get a photo of you and your research to show the extent of our members across Europe. It's simple: 1) take a picture, 2) upload it using #EYCNpics. See here for more information about the event. 

Please share this newsletter with your respective younger members groups.

If you have any news or updates that you would like to share with EYCN, please feel free to email me at We want to stay in touch with all of you and aim to improve communication across Europe.

Best wishes
