Her first job will be to present her biocatalysis work at the EYCN 2020 event in Sitges, Spain in January. Over the next two years Shona will build networks with other young chemists from across Europe.
Shona is a 50:50 student funded by the School and the Derek Stewart Trust.
Congratulations to Shona!
The European Young Chemists’ Network is the young division of EuChemS. Every chemist under the age of 35 that belongs to any of our fellow societies automatically becomes a member of the EYCN. Today, the EYCN has delegates and representatives in 28 countries, from 30 chemical societies.
The EYCN’s goal is to promote Chemistry in Europe, as well as to give new educational and networking opportunities to students and professionals. We promote several awards in different conferences, organize Career Days to improve soft-skills and collaborate in a variety of exchange programs to promote the mobility of our members. To do all this, we partner with powerful industries as well as with other young scientific societies around the world.
