Innovation Day

On Innovation Day young innovators and industry leaders come together to celebrate innovation in the chemical industry today and seek solutions for tomorrow’s challenges.


In an age of increasing interconnectivity and complexity in the chemical industries, successful innovators connect face-to-face with their peers and look beyond immediate technical matters to understand the broader implications of their work. In taking early-career scientists out of the lab and introducing them to their peers, to industry leaders, and to the historical and social context of their research, Innovation Day supports a 21st-century chemical enterprise that addresses society’s most pressing needs.

Cohosted with the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) since 2004, Innovation Day features the Warren G. Schlinger Symposium and the awarding of the SCI Gordon E. Moore Medal and SCI Perkin Medal.

Innovation Day 2018 will take place September 24–25. Details will be available soon.
