Royal Society of Chemistry Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Symposium 2022

The 2022 Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Symposium was held in Burlington House on September 7th. This event, organised by our Dalton Community and supported by the Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Foundation brought together 60 PhD and Postdoc researchers from across the UK to present their work to senior representatives from industry and academia. This year’s event was particularly special as it was the first time that the event was held in-person since 2019. The day was closed by presentations from two of the RSC Dalton Community Prize winners, Dr Ruth Webster and Professor James Wilton-Ely, who gave talks about their award winning research.

The poster symposium, which has been running since 2015, provides an opportunity for talented young inorganic chemists undertaking a PhD or postdoc to present their work to the wider community, practice their presentation skills, raise their visibility and make research connections for future collaborations. Posters are assessed by a panel of expert judges, and the winners receive bursaries to attend an international conference.
