This Colloquium is an annual event hosted by Irish Universities, alternately in Dublin and elsewhere in the country. It is typically a day and a half event consisting of approximately 25 oral presentations and over 80 poster presentations along with 24 flash (3 slides, 5 min & poster) presentations. The 71st Annual Irish Universities Chemistry research colloquium provides an opportunity for the chemistry research community, particularly postgraduates, within Ireland’s third level sector to disseminate their work either by an oral presentation or poster presentation. Two speakers, two flash talks and up to 6 posters have been invited from each of the 10 Universities on the island and speakers have been be invited from 3 Institutes of Technology. The event provides an opportunity to allow postgraduate students to network and develop possible collaborations. The invited plenary speakers will give talks that focus on different areas of sustainability. Prof. Luuk van der Wielen, Director, Bernal Institute and Chair of Biosystems Engineering & Design | University of Limerick | Ireland, Distinguished Professor for Biobased Economy | TU Delft | The Netherlands ( and President | BE-Basic Foundation | The Netherlands ( ) will give a plenary lecture on day one in TU Dublin which will focus on the area of recycling. On the second day of the colloquium, Dr. Francesca Paradisi, University of Nottingham) will deliver the plenary in RCSI on the topic of biocatalysis and flow chemistry, which allows more sustainable reactions. In addition there will be a round table discussion on the first day comprising industrial and academic mentors (Brian Glennon, APC, Mark Bowkett, TE Laboratories, Bernie Capraro, Intel and Amanda Daly from SFI) The topic for discussion is ‘Opportunities available / where to go from here for early career researchers?’ Funding from Scientific Equipment suppliers has been sought along with sponsorship from the EPA for the plenary speakers which has been successful.
