Throughout the centuries, water has always been an essential motor for the rise of new civilisations and the growth of strong economies. This historical fact plays an important role in our conference slogan “Make Chemistry Flow”. The rivers Rhine and Sieg, which are central elements of our logo, connect among many others the citys Cologne, Leverkusen, Siegen and Düsseldorf, as well as they provide a natural driven architecture for linking people, science and companies to a great network. Within our logo, the balance tray of the GDCh builds a bridge between the JCF regional groups, its members and young chemists from all over the world.
Therefore, the JCF Rhein-Sieg is proud to invite you to the 22nd meeting of the Frühjahrssymposium in Cologne! The annual meeting, which is one of the largest scientific conferences for young scientists in europe, will once again connect young chemists among themselves and with local and international companies. Highlight of the upcoming conference, which will take place from 25th - 28th March 2020, are the plenary lectures by well-known scientists Peter W. Atkins, Martyn Poliakoff, Hannes Utikal and Klaus Müllen. Furthermore, you will be able to listen to the talks of young scientists from across europe, to participate in a large poster session and to exchange with a lot of other scientists. The program of the conference is completed by a huge variety of social activities, which will give you the opportunity to learn more about the city Cologne and to make new friends. Let’s make chemistry flow!
