2023 Zhejiang University Chemical Engineering International Young Scholars Forum
The College of Chemical and Biological Engineering is scheduled to hold the "2023 Zhejiang University Chemical Engineering International Young Scholars Forum" on December 22th, 2023. The forum aims to provide a platform for young scholars in the field of chemical engineering, both domestic and international, to exchange academic ideas through academic presentations and discussions. The forum will be held both offline and online.
We sincerely invite young scholars in relevant disciplines from home and abroad to participate in the forum and discuss the forefront of the field, exchanging academic viewpoints. Interested young scholars are welcome to submit their resumes (including continuous education and work experiences since undergraduate, list of published papers and works, primary teaching and research achievements, research projects, patents and awards, and future research plans, etc.) to the email address email@example.com before November 30, 2023. Please indicate "Young Talented Scholars Forum + Your Name" in the email subject.
Shortlisted young scholars will be invited to the forum. We look forward to welcoming new talents to our vibrant academic community.
