Innovation Day

To promote early career innovation, CHF and the Society of Chemical Industry America International Group jointly organize an annual Innovation Day. The Schlinger Symposium, as part of Innovation Day, brings together promising young scientists and technology leaders from across the chemical industries, with a focus on frontiers in chemical R&D. In combination with the medal ceremonies the Schlinger Symposium offers participants the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge science and technology, exchange ideas with peer industrial researchers and entrepreneurs, and prepare to be innovation leaders.
