Industry forms a crucial part of the Dutch scientific research community and many fruitful collaborations exist between academic researchers and private partners. CHAINS gives the opportunity to meet researchers from all subdisciplines of chemistry, with academic and industrial background.



Industry & other innovation partners will blend together at the central eXCHAINS-floor at CHAINS 2017. Here you can find stands of companies who are seeking interaction with the CHAINS community to present their technologies, to recruit potential future employees or to discuss technological and societal challenges.

Be present at CHAINS 2017: have  first hand access to latest findings from the frontiers of science and meet highly trained PhDs and engineers! Get ready to exchange @eXCHAINS!

Focus sessions

Many of the focus sessions tackle our bigger societal challenges from multiple perspectives of all partners in innovation. Especially check out sessions organized by the Topsector Chemistry.
