Due to the recent pandemic, many conferences have been cancelled, postponed or switched to an online event. The board of the Platform Chemistry of the SCNAT and the Swiss Chemical Society discussed together to offer the PhD students another option for the year 2021. Instead of having only the classic awards to go to an international conference, we will also offer the possibility to apply for a lab visit. Option 1: Contribution of CHF 1000 towards the cost of an active participation at an international conference. Option 2: Contribution up to CHF 1000 to visit a Foreign Lab for research. This option is new and only available for the year 2021. The deadline is March 31st, 2021.
