Announcing the RSC Desktop Seminar Lectureship Series

RSC Desktop Seminar Lectureship Series; RSC Desktop Seminar; RSC Lectureship Seminar

The RSC is proud to recognise exceptional scientists through our series of journal lectureships. Typically, our winners are given the opportunity to present their award-winning work at international conferences or meetings, which has not been possible this year due to the disruption to in-person events caused by the global pandemic.

As a result, the RSC is delighted to announce our inaugural free, online-only RSC Desktop Seminar Lectureship Series, featuring virtual talks by our recent journal lectureship winners. Each session will include an introductory talk by a journal board member as well as the lectureship winner.

The RSC Desktop Seminar Lectureship Series is an effort to not only replace in-person research seminars during the current pandemic situation but to also expand access for researchers around the world looking to connect to some of the leading minds in the chemical sciences. The RSC Desktop Seminar Lectureships will take place during a variety of time zones to accommodate our winners from different regions, so we encourage any and all interested to register and attend.

The full list of desktop seminars can be found below – check back regularly for updates and new sessions!

Open Chemical Science: Online Events

CICAG is organising a series of online webinars and workshops with the theme “Open Chemical Science”. These events will examine the opportunities, benefits, risks and likely future developments associated with open chemistry.

 

Globally significant progress has been made towards open sharing of information. This drive to share data, software and publications is enabling the development of a more inclusive society. However, the myriad of solutions, repositories and information sources is at the same time complicating the landscape. Many questions are still under discussion, for example:

  • What are the benefits and opportunities of open chemistry?
  • How will the open research environment evolve?
  • What are the implications for users of open repositories?
  • What sources can be trusted?
  • How will information be managed and retrieved?
  • Will open research lead to competitive disadvantage?

 

The themed two-hour webinars scheduled throughout the week of 9-13 November are as follows:

Revealing our new journal Environmental Science: Atmospheres

Linking fundamental and applied atmospheric science

Connecting communities and inspiring new ideas

We are excited to announce our new open access journal, Environmental Science: Atmospheres, a cross-disciplinary journal spanning the entirety of Earth’s atmosphere. Using our fresh, transparent approach, we will help to open up boundaries, inspire innovation and forge collaborations between communities working on outdoor and indoor environment science.

“Different communities use different languages, even within science and engineering; physicists use a different language than chemists who use a different language than meteorologists.

We are creating a forum to share the newest developments and advances in our understanding of the atmosphere with an audience including environmental engineers, chemists, physicists, and policy makers.

We are providing a space where we can talk together and open collaborations between our communities.”

Editorial Board Chair Neil Donahue, Carnegie Mellon University
(researcher and leader in atmospheric chemistry)
