Amsterdam Chemistry Innovation Day (ACID) 2016

28Oct2016 12:00 - 19:00


At the Amsterdam Chemistry Innovation Day scientists and entrepreneurs inform you about their latest chemical developments and innovations. There will be ample opportunity to meet chemists from companies and academia and to scout for talented PhD students who might want to work at your organisation in the near future. Representatives of the Topsector Chemistry will be there to assist in acquiring funding for public private research projects.


After two inspiring plenary lectures participants can join parallel sessions on chemistry or business. Both academic and industrial participants have the opportunity to present their innovations via a poster.

12:00 Lunch, registration and posters
