SWACCS Junior Academy Workshop 26-27 August

15 June 2021

Welcome to a digital workshop organized by the Swedish Academic Consortium on Chemical Safety (SWACCS) and Umeå University, offering scientific seminar, extensive networking opportunities, and an occasion to learn more about visualizing and communicating your science.

The workshop is aimed for PhD students and early-career and senior researchers working in all fields related to chemicals, health and the environment.

We meet because networking is fun; communicating your science effectively is one of the most meaningful things to learn; meeting other junior and senior researchers and telling them about your research opens up new opportunities; as PhD student, you can get credits; and so much more...


All you need to do is to become a member of SWACCS, join here. Go here to registrate.
