Chemistry Travel Award 2022

Conference or Lab visit !

Many conferences have been cancelled, postponed or switched to online events. The board of the PF Chemistry and the Swiss Chemical Society discussed and offer two options also in 2022: classic conference visit or visit of a foreign lab for research.

Congratulations to the winner fo the Chemistry Travel Awards 2022!
