We are the young generation in chemistry

As a working group of the Austrian Chemical Society (GÖCH) we represent all young scientists in the field of chemistry in Austria. We do not only cover their interests within the society but also in business and in public. Our connections are spread out even further than the borders of Austria for example to the European Young Chemists' Network (EYCN).

Our aim is to bring young people in chemistry closer together with each other, with educational institutions and with partners in business on both the national and international level. Hence we organise events like lecture series, workshops or excursions. Moreover, we get involved sociopolitically to encourage a positive image of chemistry.

Show us your research project in a creative short film in 150 seconds and win 100 euro!
