They are young and chemists. A nice bond that announces a promising future. More than 140 PhD and postdoctoral students and researchers are gathered in Barcelona in the frame of the “Young Researchers Symposium XII of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry – Sigma Aldrich” (November 3-6, 2015). A conference for researchers under 40 years-old representing all areas of the chemistry spectra.
ICIQ has contributed a great deal in the organization and development of the symposium. Prof. Julio Lloret-Fillol is member of the symposium’s scientific committee, and his group PhD students Carla Casadevall and Arnau Call, are part of the organizing committee. As for the symposium’s programme, Prof. Lloret-Fillol and Prof. Ruben Martin, both ICIQ group leaders, are scheduled to deliver a lecture; Arnau and Carla will give an oral communication; and last but not least, Cayetana Zárate, is receiving the Suschem-JIQ award and Prof. Lloret-Fillol is receiving the Premio Sigma-Aldrich a Jóvenes Investigadores RSEQ.
Since its first edition in 2004, the “Young Researchers Symposium” aims to promote the dissemination of research by the new generation of chemists, to establish cooperation between young scientists and to encourage interdisciplinary chemistry for the 21st century.
