View the event through a virtual platform

The event was held in the fabulous Maison de la Chimie in the heart of Paris. It was also broadcast live over the internet through a virtual event platform. This platform allowed you to view the presentations live as they happened in Paris; all presentations were archived and are now available on demand. The platform also allows you to download additional materials; however, communication with speakers and other virtual attendees was only possible during the live event.

The Virtual Event can not be accessed anymore, but you can look at pictures and/or read the Nobel lectures.
