On behalf of the chemists of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area we are very pleased to organize the online event ACID 2020. The programme captures the essence of ACID with illustrated speakers from industry, academia and policy who will cover topics from research innovation at a large company to the unchallenged role of chemistry in our society and why performing chemical reactions in flow might be the way to go.
|Date||30 October 2020|
Next to the plenary session, we also have a parallel session with diverse topics. Below you will see the full program.

a. Careers in chemistry - special session for BSc-, MSc, PhD & Postdoc
b. What AI and data can add to chemistry?
c. Life science valorization at VU University
Bachelor, Master, and PhD-students from the Science, Business & Innovation Division of VU Amsterdam, study valorization of science-driven and technology-induced life & health innovations in actual practice, in the very context wherein the innovation process takes place. This session delves into the basics of this and presents actual examples and outcomes of this research.
d. Chemical industry in urban development area
Amsterdam urban areas expand towards chemical plants that were one constructed in rural, open areas. How can we make the optimal fit for space still available? Ir. Frits van der Sluis from Albemarle Catalysts Company in Amsterdam shares his experiences.
Please register before 23 October 2020. Participation is free of charge.
The event will be organized online. Participants will receive a link to join the meeting via ZOOM well before the event.
