Science Chemistry Innovation Seminar

SCI - Where Science Meets Business

Tuesday 25 and Thursday 27 July 2017

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Australia

(limited places available)

Synopsis

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of its inception, the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) will hold its Centenary Conference alongside the 17th Asian Chemical Congress. This premium event will consist of a congress of independent conferences and bring together thousands of international delegates.

The SCI Seminar will focus on the practical aspects surrounding the interface between chemistry and commercialisation - taking science from the lab to market. Speakers from a broad range of sectors (industry, financiers, patenting, publishing and government) will share their experience, including the importance of networking to achieve this.

Attendees

This seminar will appeal to scientists from industry and academia, who are looking to commercialise their ideas and concepts. It contrasts with other conferences, more academic or specialised and offers an excellent opportunity for networking between like-minded delegates of all levels and experience. Cases studies will give concrete examples of how to succeed in taking lab discoveries to the market place.
