On November 28 from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the chemical sciences community will hold a new edition of the Chemical Profession Day Conference in the Auditorium of the Faculty of Chemical Sciences (UNC). Under the slogan “Chemistry in the construction of a sustainable future”, this time the event will have sustainability as its priority axis.

The central themes will be urban waste collectors, garbage, plastics, construction materials, the circular economy, lithium and the energy transition, in addition the event will have a hybrid modality (in person and with live transmission through the YouTube Channel of the FCQ).

The event is especially intended for graduates of a Bachelor’s and/or Doctorate in Chemical Sciences, Biochemistry, Pharmacy and Biotechnology, as well as last-year students of the FCQ (UNC) careers and society in general.
