Each year, Jong KNCV organises a poster competition especially for academic Master’s students. This competition, which has been organised since 1999, takes place during the PAC Symposium, an annual chemistry symposium for students organised by students. The competition offers students a platform for presenting their internship assignment or research by means of a poster.
Students participating in the competition have free access to the symposium. Alongside the public prize, for which everybody attending the symposium can vote, a professional KNCV jury will award three prizes at the end of the day.
On Thursday 5 March 2020 the PAC Symposium and the poster competition will take place.
Thursday 7 March 2019 the most recent edition of the poster competition took place during the PAC Symposium entitled ‘Discovery’ at Utrecht University.
