Evonik and the European Young Chemists’ Network (EYCN) signed a three-year cooperation agreement. Among other things, the new cooperation agreement lays down guidelines for Evonik’s support and sponsorship of the EYCN, thereby creating a stable basis for implementing projects aimed at nurturing young European chemists. On the basis of this agreement, Evonik will also fund travel grants and internships for students of the Network.

The EYCN brings together young chemists in Europe under the age of 35 within the framework of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS). Currently, 24 youth organizations from 20 European countries are affiliated with the network.

The cooperation agreement will give Evonik direct access to highly qualified interns from European member states including non-EU countries such as Russia and Israel. In addition, Evonik will be allowed to present itself to young European scientists as an employer in the EYCN’s media activities.
