Innovation Day

David Guston presents the Schlinger Symposium
Opening Plenary Address at the 11th annual
Innovation Day Conference.

In an age of increasing interconnectivity and complexity in the chemical industries, successful innovators connect face-to-face with their peers and look beyond immediate technical matters to understand the broader implications of their work. In taking early-career scientists out of the lab and introducing them to their peers, to industry leaders, and to the historical and social context of their research, Innovation Day supports a 21st-century chemical enterprise that addresses society’s most pressing needs.

Since 2004, CHF and the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) have hosted Innovation Day, featuring the Warren G. Schlinger Symposium and the awarding of the SCI Gordon E. Moore Medal and SCI Perkin Medal.
