Icon SCS-SeminarsMon, 16. January - Wed 18. January 2017, 
Au Parc Hotel, Fribourg;

The SCS Seminars are three-days educational event with a focus on topics relevant for the Swiss chemical and pharmaceutical industry but that are not necessarily part of the academic curricula.

The first seminar in 2017 will focus on issues of process chemistry such as

  • Production costs
  • Efficiency and yield
  • Energy consumption and power efficiency
  • Time to market
  • Safety issues
  • Waste handling
  • Regulations standards and patents

We hope to create an offer that, fills an education gap on the academic side and fulfills the needs of our industrial partners.

SCS Seminar Series

The SCS Seminar series targets PhD students, Postdocs as well as junior scientists from industry, and will be led by senior scientists and designated experts.

Active participation is key for all attendees. A good mix between

  • theoretical lectures,
  • reports of concrete projects from industry,
  • interactive workshops/panel discussions and
  • short presentations by participants

will guarantee a maximum of impact. Each participant brings along a specific challenge out of his daily lab work and will present a poster of the current work.
