At the Swiss Industrial Chemistry Symposium that took place as an online conference on October 30, 2020, Helvetica awarded the Best Virtual Poster Award to three young scientists. As traditional posters in A0 format were not convenient to be studied online, the students presented their projects in a 3min video message.

The jury considered video presentations from academic participants only. The three winners got a certificate and a cash check of CHF 200.00 each.
