NWO CHAINS IN A NUTSHELL
NWO CHAINS is the annual Dutch chemistry conference. It is the event where over 1.500 chemists, from PhD students and postdocs to professors and R&D scientists, in science and industry come together.
NWO facilitates scientific networking, stimulates the exchange of scientific ideas and results and encourages collaboration by bringing the Dutch scientific community together.
The theme for this edition is: The element of surprise!
Registration is open!

NWO CHAINS 2022 will take place live @ NH Koningshof in Veldhoven on 21 & 22 September 2022.
On advice of the Programme Committee, Round Table Chemistry and the four Chemistry Research Advisory Committees, NWO has decided to organise NWO CHAINS 2022 in September instead of December. In the past two years we had to resort to complete online editions due to COVID-19 regulations. This year, by rescheduling the conference to September, we hope to increase the chance of a live edition.
A live edition allows for profound interaction and offers junior scientists the opportunity to (finally) present their work to a physical audience. The advantages of an increased possibility for a live edition outweighed the disadvantages of moving NWO CHAINS to September, such as conflicting calendars.
More information on the programme, deadlines and practical information will follow soon!
