EYCN (young division of the EuChemS)

The European Young Chemists’ Network (EYCN) is a young division of the European Chemical Society (EuChemS). The EYCN was founded in 2006 and its primary goal is to connect chemists across Europe. Currently, the network has representatives from 28 countries. The representatives are young chemists under the age of 35 who aim to bring chemistry closer to a wider audience, create an exchange platform for academia and industry, as well as support young chemists at the early stage of their career. The EYCN participates actively in international events, organizes meetings and conferences, as well as arranges contests and awards young chemists.

The Finnish Chemical Society has taken part in the activities of the EYCN since 2007. The first Finnish representative was Helena Laavi who contributed to the network from 2007 to 2013. Tiina McKee continued after Laavi to pursue the interests of young chemists until 2020. The current Finnish delegate in the EYCN is Katja Väyrynen.
