The SICS is a new, one-day symposium with lectures and short talks of industrial chemists working in R&D in Switzerland. The symposium offers a unique platform for industrial scientists, working in research and process research, to present their latest results, to interact with each other and to network with professors, PhD students and other scientific staff of Swiss universities. An extended poster session with presentations from industry (20%) and academy (80%) will stimulate the interaction.
