Young Environmental Forum (JUF) of the GDCh Division of Environmental Chemistry & Ecotoxicology

After the great success of the first forum in 2013, the Board of the Division decided to aim for a regular meeting. The event offers young environmental chemistry and ecotoxicology researchers (doctoral students, younger professionals and master’s students) the opportunity to present their own results (as part of their doctoral or master’s thesis), for professional exchange, to get to know each other and for interdisciplinary discussions in the circle of approx. 20-40 participants.

JUF 2023 in Muttenz (Switzerland) on September 11th

On September 11, 2023, in the run-up to Environment 2023, the “Young Environmental Forum - JUF”, redesigned by the Young environmental chemistry & Ecotoxicology (jUCÖT), took place in Muttenz (Switzerland) with the participation of SETAC GLB (Society of Environmental Toxicology & Chemistry Europe, German-Language). Branch eV) will be held in presence again for the first email. The junior conference, which emerged from the “Young environmental chemistry Forum” and “Forum of Young Environmental Scientists”, offers students and doctoral candidates from environmental science fields the opportunity to present their research at an early stage in the form of a lecture, to exchange ideas with other young scientists and to make new contacts to tie. Almost 30 students and doctoral candidates from all over Germany and Switzerland came together for this. The JUF was introduced by Janet Hering, who, as a retired professor from ETH Zurich and EPFL as well as a former director of Eawag, gave a varied and interactive lecture on the topic of career opportunities in the natural sciences. This was followed by the participants’ presentations. From endocrine disruptors, cytotoxicity and alternative test methods, to geochemical indicators, hydrodechlorination and trace element accumulation to multi-element monitoring, a wide range of topics from ecotoxicology, environmental chemistry, geosciences to analytical method development were represented. The participants were also actively involved in the discussion without making their own contribution, and the many different expertise and professional perspectives of the participants often resulted in exciting new aspects of the topics presented. Stefan Höger's lecture on possible career prospects and entry opportunities at IES Ltd provided further variety in the program of this year's JUF.

We are looking forward to the next JUF and would like to thank our sponsors this year, ibacon GmbH, IES Ltd and Carbolution Chemicals GmbH!

JUF 2022 (cancelled)

The Young environmental chemistry Forum ( JUF ) was supposed to take place on September 5, 2022 in Emden in the run-up to "Environment 2022" - and thus again in presence - but unfortunately had to be canceled at short notice.

JUF 2021 (#4; online)

On September 6, 2021, the Young environmental chemistry Forum (JUF) took place online for the first time and was led by the youth organization of the Division, the Young environmental chemistry & Ecotoxicology (jUCÖT), which was founded in April of this year. The JUF was introduced by an exciting lecture on the topic "Biocides in breams, DIY stores and authorities - interaction between research, political advice and implementation" by Stefanie Wieck from the Federal Environment Agency in Dessau-Roßlau. Afterwards, seven young scientists and young professionals presented their research on the topics of transformation processes, instrumental and effect-related analytics and nanotechnology/nanoparticles. In the virtual audience there were also curious young scientists and students without their own lecture, who took the opportunity to get a taste of the conference and ask questions. After each lecture there was a lively discussion and question and answer session among the 15 participants.

JUF 2017 (#3; Munster)

The third edition of the Forum of Young Environmental Scientists took place from 19.-21. June 2017 in Münster and was organized by the Division together with the JungChemikerForum Münster. Lectures and posters on all topics from the field of environmental chemistry and ecotoxicology were welcome, from analytics to effects, from soil to water to air, from measurement to modeling, from assessment to regulation.

JUF 2015 (#2; Blomberg Castle)

After the great success of the premiere in 2013, the Division invited from 22.-24. June 2015 to the second forum of young environmental scientists at Blomberg Castle - again under the direction of Prof. Dr. Christina Eighth. Lectures and posters on all topics in the field of environmental chemistry and ecotoxicology such as environmental analysis & tools for impact assessment, problematic substances in the environment, environmental monitoring of chemicals, chemodynamics in water & sediment, bioavailability, transformation processes, air pollution & aerosol, environmental compartment distribution, effects of Individual substances & mixtures, effects on communities, biodiversity, aquatic & terrestrial ecosystems, ecotoxicological modelling, risk assessment & QSAR, material flow management & environmental legislation, technical solutions and socio-ecological approaches were welcome.

JUF 2013 (#1; Blomberg Castle)

For improved networking of young environmental scientists in Germany, from 27.-29. May 2013 for the first time the forum of young environmental scientists took place in the Burghotel Blomberg. 23 participants from Germany and Austria from various areas of environmental chemistry and ecotoxicology were given the opportunity to present their work to an interested specialist audience and to discuss it together. The event, organized by the GDCh Division of Environmental Chemistry & Ecotoxicology , covered the subject areas of analysis, distribution of pollutants in the environment, transformation of pollutants, effects of pollutants on organisms, chemical assessment, etc., and was headed by Prof. Dr. Christine Achten (University of Munster).
