WiFo 2021

The GDCh Science Forum (WiFo) Chemistry 2021 took place from August 29 to September 1 under the motto ?Chemists create solutions. For the first time, the WiFo was carried out completely in digital space. In addition to the lectures, the digital format contained many of the usual elements, such as the opening event, award ceremonies, poster sessions, scientific discussions and informal exchange during the coffee breaks.

Most of the WiFi was held in English. Each day of the event was dedicated to a ?mega-topic? of high social relevance. Plenary symposia at the beginning of each day of the event illuminated the topics from different angles. The topic on Monday was "How to Avoid the Next Pandemic - Fighting Infectious Diseases of the Future", on Tuesday it was about "Chemistry for Future Energy Solutions" and on Wednesday about "Perspectives for a Green Future". The tried and tested specialist group presentations were not neglected either.

ChemSlam, in which four slammers presented a scientific topic in a generally understandable manner in ten minutes, and the public evening lecture by the physicist and science journalist Prof. Harald Lesch, was accessible to all interested parties.

The complete program can be found on the website of the Science Forum Chemistry, a detailed summary on Chemistry Views and some impressions on Twitter.
