Top Sector Chemistry Student Competition 2017

Published on February 8, 2017

For the fourth successive year, the Top Sector Chemistry student competition is organized by NWO Domain Science, and powered by the Top Sector Chemistry. Student teams from universities and universities of applied sciences (HBO) are invited to submit ideas for creative research projects, focusing on societal or industrial challenges. The competition is open for chemistry students, but also for interdisciplinary teams with students in e.g. biology, physics, computer science, as long as the research question has a strong chemical component.

The call is now open for applications, deadline is 16 March 2017.

Up to four student teams will receive grants for a research project, to be performed in May-August. Teams will be presenting their project results during the chemistry conference CHAINS 2017 (5-7 December 2017), where also the winning team will be announced.

 This is an opportunity for students to take a step in their career, as well as for research group leaders to expose their research for a large audience during CHAINS 2017.
