The event aims at bring together both young and experienced researchers from different fields in chemistry and life sciences. We work to build bridges between disciplines by centring around our common passion for chemistry.
CRF and ChemCYS were formerly two different chemistry conference series in Flanders. CRF has been organised by the two FWO (The Research Foundation – Flanders) communities Catalysis research: from individual active sites to reactors and Sustainable chemical processes for synthesis of fine chemicals. ChemCYS is an initiative of the youth division of the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (KVCV). For the 2022 edition, we have joined forces, organizing CRF-ChemCYS 2022 together – we believe that this way we can expand further upon our reach within the chemical community.
Our scientific programme is composed of 2 plenary lectures, 10-15 keynote speakers, around 100 oral contributions from young researchers, and poster sessions. The oral and poster contributions are organized around 6 different themes:
- Chemical Synthesis & Methodologies
- Chemical Processes & Reactor Technologies
- Chemistry meets Biology
- Energy & Environment
- Functional Materials
- Renewables & Sustainability
The event is supported by Chemistry Europe.
