120 young researchers from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) have participated for three days in the Young Science Symposium, a scientific and educational initiative organized by the Faculty of Chemical Sciences and Technologies of the Ciudad Real Campus, which this year celebrates its majority and which was closed today by the rector, Julián Garde.

The initiative aimed to promote interaction, multidisciplinarity and transversality of research carried out by young people in the scientific and technological fields related to Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Food Science and Technology, traditional teachings of the host center, so that they can learn about what their peers are working on; as well as foster collaboration between research groups at the regional University.

According to the dean of the Faculty of Chemical Sciences and Technologies, Manuel Rodrigo, this is a “scientific congress” that has a double aspect: on the one hand, the informative aspect, in which the participants “tell what they do”; and, on the other, the formative aspect, “they are trained to know how to disseminate science,” according to the UCLM in a press release.

Furthermore, it is a congress with a “great diversity of participants”, a fact that, according to the rector, reflects the interest it arouses year after year and its success. In this sense, although the symposium has brought together mostly young researchers from the Faculty of Chemical Sciences and Technologies, other centres or institutes have also participated, such as the Botanical Institute of Albacete, the Higher Technical School of Agricultural Engineers or the Higher Technical School of Industrial Engineering of Ciudad Real, or the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Biochemistry of Toledo.

The rector has highlighted the importance of knowing the research work carried out by other colleagues, and has assured that scientific and informative events such as this one are an “unbeatable opportunity for you young people to be motivated and committed to science and to a research career.”

In this context, Garde has referred to the UCLM’s commitment to research activity in all its aspects and has announced that in the coming days the call for UCLM-Santander scholarships to start research will be published for students who, having passed the EvAU in the current academic year, enroll in one of the official degrees of the regional University in the 2024-2025 academic year.

The symposium included the presentation of 36 oral communications by young researchers, which were previously selected from among those presented by a scientific committee; and the presentation of 34 virtual flash videos, approximately three minutes long, made by students who are currently completing their final degree or master’s project or doctorate and which were uploaded to social networks to be seen by everyone and which have had a large number of views and interactions.

Along with these activities, five guest talks were held, the theme of which in this edition was aimed at helping young researchers with issues such as time management in their work, making a CV or entrepreneurship, among others.
