Finding innovative solutions to the challenges of today requires confident and skilled professionals able to forge fruitful collaborations, connect across disciplines and communicate their ideas, all with a focus on sustainability.  Dr Jennifer Dodson (post-doc at University of York and Chair of NESSE) and Dr Cliff Coss (Chief Technology Officer of GlycoSurf and Vice-Chair of NESSE) will discuss how early-career scientists can create a powerful community to accelerate the move towards a more sustainable society, underpinned by science & technology.

The webinar will highlight:

  • The aims and need for sustainable chemistry
  • The barriers and challenges to developing and implementing sustainable chemistry and technology
  • The desire of industry for professionals with the skills and connections to innovate sustainably
  • How early-career scientists can connect, share skills and communicate across disciplines to develop the solutions to spread sustainable science & technology

Join the discussion about how we can build a community of young science & engineering professionals creating innovative sustainable solutions to the most pressing challenges within society.  Contact greenstems@york.ac.uk  for further details and for attending the webinar from the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence together with members of the greenSTEMS group.

Join the ACS webinar on 4th September, 7-8pm
