7th European Variety in University Chemistry Education, run under the auspices of the EuCheMS Division of Chemical Education, brings together chemistry lecturers and educational professionals to improve understanding of chemistry teaching and learning at college and university level. Papers may deal with the practical aspects of teaching chemistry, or with research into chemistry education at tertiary level (general and vocational higher education institutions, HEIs), at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The conference theme "University Chemistry Education for the Challenges of Contemporary Society" points out the need for continuous reconsideration of the connections among BSc, MSc, and PhD chemistry studies with the contemporary professional, social and scientific challenges.

The Eurovariety conferences follow the tradition of the UK Variety in Chemistry Education (ViCE) conferences in encouraging chemists to be involved in teaching Chemistry at tertiary level, and to share their experiences and learn from colleagues from other institutions and other countries.

Doctoral chemistry students (and related study programmes such as biochemistry or chemical engineering) are cordially invited to join us and present their own impressions and conclusions gained during their first teaching experiences. Slam Session consists of 5-minute practice-oriented presentations. The best slam talks will be awarded.

It's time to start organising your trip to Belgrade!
