The Young Chemists Group (GQJ) of the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ) was created in December, 8th, 2007. The GQJ represents a scientific platform that gathers chemists’ until 35y with the following objectives:

    Promotion of networks within the young chemists in Portuguese research centers;
    Link the chemical community both in research and industry;
    Represent the Portuguese young chemists in international affairs, such as the European Young Chemists Network (EYCN).
The GQJ concentrates its efforts in the following activities:
    PYCheM, the biennial conference of young chemists in Portugal;
    PYCA, a biennial award for the best PhD thesis of a young chemist;
    ChemRus, an annual competition of scientific videos based on chemical knowledge for high school students.
If you want to be part of GQJ, please send an email to sede@spq.pt, presenting your name, filiation, SPQ associate number and email address.

PYCheM

The Portuguese Young Chemists Meeting, PYCheM, is a biennial conference dedicated to the science produced by the Portuguese young chemists. PYCheM represents the main event in the calendar for chemists under 35y, in an intellectual and stimulant environment. Since the 1 PYCheM in Lisbon, this conference is growing in the number of participants and in the quality and relevance of international scientists present (3 Nobel Prize Winners).

The organizing commission of the 5 PYCheM invites you to Braga, 2016.

PYCA


The Portuguese Young Chemists Award (PYCA) intends to promote the PhD thesis developed by a Portuguese young chemist with the highest scientific and social impact. This award is assigned in each PYCheM to newly PhD’s. The winner as the opportunity to write an article for the SPQ’s magazine, in addition to a monetary prize by our main sponsor, Gradiva.

European Young Chemists Network - EYCN

The EYCN is the division of young chemists of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS) and was created in April, 1st, 2007 in Berlin. The young chemists of EuCheMS member states are represented by their national delegates.

The GQJ represents the Portuguese young chemists in all the activities promoted by the EYCN. The development and marketing of these activities across Europe requires an annual Delegates Assembly, which the GQJ had the honor to organize in Aveiro, between 6 and 9 of May, 2012.

All the EYCN activities can be found at www.eycn.eu or followed in facebook and twitter. For further comments or suggestions, please use communication@eycn.eu!
