CRF-ChemCYS 2022


Welcome to CRF-ChemCYS 2022

We are happy to introduce to you the Chemical Research in Flanders - Chemistry Conference for Young Scientists (CRF-ChemCYS) symposium that will be held 12-14 October 2022 at Blankenberge, Belgium. The aim of the CRF-ChemCYS 2022 meeting is to bring together both young and experienced researchers from different fields in chemistry and life sciences. We work to build bridges between disciplines by centring around our common passion for chemistry.

CRF and ChemCYS were formerly two different chemistry conference series in Flanders. CRF has been organised by the two FWO (The Research Foundation - Flanders) communities Catalysis research: from individual active sites to reactors and Sustainable chemical processes for synthesis of fine chemicals. ChemCYS is an initiative of the youth division of the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (KVCV). For the 2022 edition, we have joined forces, organizing CRF-ChemCYS 2022 together – we believe that this way we can expand further upon our reach within the chemical community.

Present your Work

Young scientists have the opportunity to take the stage (for the first time) during an oral or poster contribution

Rediscover Chemistry

Find out what lives in the chemical world by attending our plenary and keynote lectures

Opening Borders

We work around 6 different themes in which chemistry is crucial, set up in such a way that opens interdisciplinary discussion


Our social events are the perfect occasions to meet interesting people and expand your network

What I liked most at the CRF conference was the very fine and positive social webbing between all Flanders scientists, the atmosphere of respect and cohesion. Be happy to have such a nice environment, [...] I relaxed and enjoyed [...]

Science knows no boundaries. This is why it is so fantastic that fellow students from all over the world can meet and learn from each other at this event. These are the young people who will soon shape our increasingly sustainable society. Perhaps some of them will once win a Nobel Prize themselves.

This symposium is financially supported by the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO), the Flemish Interuniversity Council (VLIR) and the Chemistry Europe Publishing Association
