The organizing committee of the 2nd Swiss Industrial Chemistry Symposium (SICS), that took place at University of Basel on Friday, October 19, 2018, awarded three students with the SICS Best Poster Award 2018. 85% of the posters that were presented in one of the two sessions during lunch time came from PhD students and they completed the lecture program that exclusively presented industrial project.

After the ceremony, the three winners gave a five minute short talk on their research. The SCS and the organizing committee like to take the opportunity to congratulates the winners again:
