Founding an international IUPAC young chemists network

Founding an international network for young chemists

The idea is simple: cause there is no international network for young chemists the idea came up to form such a network to get better connections through the world may for exchange programms or for better international communication for research topics etc.  

Topic: network Audience: students, professional chemists

This is an excellent idea and fits in very well with the aims of IYC.  Hopefully you can use the IYC website as a way to establish communications within this new network.

This is a great idea and something I could pitch to other students at my University. Do you got any plans for implementing this or is it just at an idea stage?

Hi Mats !

No, we have precise ideas how it should look like and at  the moment we try to establish the board and get connected to each society (country, etc. ). Would you like to help us getting started ?

Hi Michael

I would like to help to get this thing going so it's up and running by next year. How can I help out with this? Would it be an idea to set up a wiki page so people could stay informed on this project?

IUPAC has IUPAC affiliate programme and database for young chemists under 35 years old from around the world. I think it is better to use this one for the active netwrok and would be more appropriate. I hope Bryan Henry would recommend this and give us more ideas. I am IUPAC affiliate among the one and can help in this regard.

Very good idea.
I propose to alert the French network of Schools of Chemistry (the so called "Grandes Ecoles")

this project will help to exchange the experience between chemists!

I agree. This is a wonderful idea since it will be more efficient and the flow of information is easier :)
