Explore the boundary with chemistry at the Japie Symposium!

April 5th, 2024

Japie, the study association of chemical engineering and chemistry, is proud to present her very own symposium centered around the theme of ‘Circularity: The New Shape of Chemistry’.

The symposium, covering a broad range of topics, will explore the intersection of physics and chemistry in circularity, uncovering cutting-edge innovations and real-world applications driving sustainability. Engage with expert speakers, network with industry leaders, and immerse yourself in dynamic discussions. Don’t miss this invaluable opportunity to explore the forefront of circular innovation, expand your knowledge and connect with like-minded peers. The speaker list presents a near equal split between academia and industry, including Dow, BASF SE, Dr. Katrien Bernaerts (Maastricht University), Chemelot Circular Hub, Dr. Süleyman Er (DIFFER), Shell, Dr. Fabian Eisenreich(TU/e), and Water Energy Solutions.

Students and professionals from a variety of backgrounds alike are encouraged to join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, for a day filled with inspiring talks from leading experts and ample networking opportunities. In addition, the event has received the USE/ITEC label, meaning student participants may receive a USE/ITEC point by attending the symposium!
