As part of our tercentenary celebrations, the School of Chemistry is organising a Chemistry Themed Comedy Night in association with the Bright Club.
In commemoration of 300 years of chemistry at the University of Edinburgh, we are hosting a debate on the place of science and higher education within an independent Scotland. Will Scotland's proud enlightened legacy be better served in union or going it alone?
Our Graduation celebrations will open with a public lecture on the evening of the 27th of June by one of our distinguished alumni, Sir Fraser Stoddart, a pioneer in molecular architecture and nanotechnology.
On the 28th of June we invite you back to the School of Chemistry for a symposium that celebrates the most exciting chemistry research being performed by our former graduates intermingled with reflections and recollections by former members of staff.
This year we will hold a special graduation for the School to honour our graduands and their families and to celebrate our 300 years of achievements.
Registration for the Universities of Scotland Inorganic Conference is now open. Everyone who registers is guaranteed a poster presentation and we are looking forward to a broad range of chemistry.
This public exhibition in the Main Library in George Square and focussing on contributions our School has made to Chemistry is timed to coincide with the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe.
Each generation of scientists owes a debt to preceding generations. The School of Chemistry can lay claim to having educated and nurtured many gifted students, and each generation can tell its own story.
The School has commissioned renowned Scottish composer Julian Wagstaff to create an original work for a musical celebration of the Edinburgh Chemistry tercentenary.
