The event program 2021 provides again a diverse selection of topics, covering the full range of fields in which the SCS is active. From education seminars to multiple-day congresses, from organic synthesis to intellectual property in the life sciences, the program includes events that will be of interest of most of our members. Beside the listed events below, the SCS organizes also further education courses and in-company trainings as well as lecture tours in Switzerland of distinguished scientists. 

Safe the dates and we are happy to welcoming you soon. Some of the big events will take place online as the current COVID-19 situation makes it impossible to plan seriously for an on-site event. Smaller and more flexible events are still planed as on-site events with a backup to shift them to the virtual room. In any case, we hope you enjoy the program and that it provides the input you are looking for.
