The 1st Swiss Symposium on Materials Chemistry 2023 was a major event organized by the SCS Materials Chemistry (MatChem) Network with the aim of connecting scientists across all materials chemistry related fields in Switzerland, including solid-state-chemistry, materials synthesis, and advanced characterization.The program included a keynote lecture, invited lectures, contributed lectures by PhD students and postdocs, as well as a poster session. The two best student presentations were awarded with the Best Oral and the Best Poster Presentation Award, that includes a certificate and prize money of 100 CHF each.
