European Young Chemist’s Network

The European Young Chemists’ Network is the young division of EuCheMS. Every chemist under the age of 35 that belongs to any of our fellow societies (see the full list here) automatically becomes a member of the EYCN. Today, the EYCN has delegates and representatives in 25 countries (from 27 chemical societies)

EYCN Programme Kindly sponsored by Unilever



EYCN organises, in collaboration with the Società Chimica Italiana and Consiglio Nazionale dei Chimici, the European Young Chemist Award – EYCA. This awards recognises the best PhD students and Postdoc researchers in Europe. Lectures by the selected finalists will be open to the public.

The programme will feature keynote talks delivered by promising young chemists in Europe like ERC and MCSA grantees. Lectures will cover six different chemistry fields to try to be as inclusive as possible.

EYCN symposium will also have social events, some of them designed to foster networking between young chemists, established researchers, and chemical companies as well as other events in local pubs to share chemistry with the general public.

The EYCN symposium will have a series of workshops for early career chemists. Some of them will be designed to improve soft skills (paper writing, oral communication, problem solving, job interviews) and others will be specifically targeted towards grant proposals. Recent ERC and MSCA awardees will share their tips to compile a winning proposal for EU funding.
