Fall 2020 National Meeting: Moving Chemistry from Bench to Market

Theme Statement:

Chemists improve lives globally every day by transforming research at the bench to commercial innovations.

Join us at Moving Chemistry from Bench to Market and advance your impact on translating research to products and services that only chemistry and chemists can provide!

Moving Chemistry from Bench to Market offers connections, skills, insights and access that chemistry professionals cannot get anywhere else!

  • Meet like-minded innovators who have taken ideas and products from bench to market;
  • Expand your view of what chemistry can contribute to solving global problems and how that happens;
  • Connect your research on the bench to market continuum to create opportunities, products and impact.

See firsthand how multidisciplinary, cross-functional teams and partnerships amplify the impact of research.

Funding Opportunities for Technical Sessions

ACS is pleased to offer funds to support collaborative programming at the national meetings. Technical divisions and programming committees are encouraged to apply.  The symposia must be aligned with the national meeting theme and have at least one cooperative cosponsor. Funding is based on the size and duration of each theme-related, cooperatively cosponsored symposium. Details of timing for applications are on the funding application.
