The Young Scientists Network – How the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) became young again.

Goncharenko, Kristina and Mari, Michele and Auberson, Yves and Matagne, Brieuc (2020) The Young Scientists Network – How the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) became young again. ChemMedChem : chemistry enabling drug discovery. ISSN 1860-71791860-7187

Abstract

The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) created the Young Scientists Network (YSN) to support early career medicinal chemists and chemical biologists. By doing this, it addressed the rapid changes taking place in the scientific community and in our society. In particular, the rise of social media, the change in gender balance in the scientists’ population, and the evolution of educational needs. Creating the YSN was also a way to ensure that the next generation of scientists would contribute to shaping EFMC’s strategy, while recognizing and addressing their needs. The YSN was set up as a very dynamic concept, and has now developed to the point where its impact is evident. The activities it promotes complement EFMC’s community support and scientific opportunities, rejuvenating the Federation and preparing it for the future. It also provides opportunities for many brilliant, young scientists, who do not hesitate to invest time and energy in supporting our community and shaping their own future.
