National Undergraduate Online Poster Competition 2020



The Society of Chemical Industry Young Chemists Panel, supported by AstraZeneca, organised the National Undergraduate Online Poster Competition 2020, the eighth in this series. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the eighth edition of the National Undergraduate Research Symposium was moved to be a virtual poster competition held online. This was a showcase of the best undergraduate research in the UK in the area of synthesis, methodology, catalysis, supramolecular chemistry, physical organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry and chemical biology.

The event ran from 16th June to 26th June 2020.

Thank You!

Thank you for your engagement with this competition! Thank you to all the students who prepared posters and audio accompaniments under difficult circumstances – the quality of production and passion for their science was clear to see. Thank you to the audience who visited the gallery and shared their experiences on social media to create a great buzz around the event. Thank you to the organising committee, the Young Chemists' Panel and the SCI for putting the event together. We hope you enjoyed the format this year – we very much enjoyed putting it together.
