The European Young Chemists’ Network (EYCN) is the young division of EuCheMS (European Chemical Sciences). It has been active since 2006 and its goal is to promote Chemistry in Europe, as well as to give new educational and networking opportunities to students and professionals. The EYCN was able to arrange a collaboration with the COST Action within the H2020 and could attend the meeting in Grenoble (France).
