Dear EYCN Delegates,

Welcome to the June 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. This month we would like to share with you some very exciting news.

Also, remember that, after the news section, you may find the events that will take place in the following months. Those that are new with respect to the last newsletter are tagged as NEW. See below for more details.
  1. EVONIK Press release.
    Here you can read about the collaboration between EVONIK and EYCN. We are grateful for the support provided by EVONIK and look forward to continue working with them.

  2. RSC Announcement of their Public Attitudes to Chemistry findings.
    We are excited to present to you the RSC publication of its recent study on Public attitudes to chemistry. Those who attended the EYCN delegates’ assembly would have been fortunate enough to hear Chiara present some of her inspiring work. You can read about all the research she carried out here.
  3.  The 12th Greece – Cyprus Chemistry Conference
    It was held in the beautiful city of Thessaloniki (GR) from 8th-11th May 2015. Excellently organized by the Association of Greek Chemists (AGC) and the Pancyprian Union of Chemists in close collaboration with AGC’s Northern Branch, the Chemistry Department of the University of Thessaloniki, the Chemistry Department of the University of Cyprus and the State General Laboratory of Cyprus, more than 700 chemists and chemistry students participated, many of them selected for an oral or poster presentation. Astonishingly, more than 400 of them were young, enthusiastic people, highly interested in chemistry that want to follow up the new trends in their field of interest. Last but not least, all the participants highlighted the excellent quality of the research work presented during the three days conference along with the passion of the young chemists and students in disseminating their scientific results. More details (in Greek) and photos can be found at the site of the conference. See a selection of pictures below.
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
