The Young Observer program provides an excellent opportunity
for young scientists to participate in sessions of the IUPAC General
Assembly and establish international collaborations, gain knowledge
of global research activities, and participate in IUPAC activities.
Some Young Observers from previous congresses have remained actively
involved in IUPAC by joining or chairing committees or task groups.

Awards are offered by IUPAC to candidates from all National
Adhering Organizations (NAOs) and Associate NAOs. All successful candidates
are expected to also submit an abstract for a poster or paper to be
presented at the Congress held concurrently.
Both the U.S. and U.K. NAOs have independently
selected and supported the participation of young scientists from their
countries. For details about these programs, including applications
procedures, age limits, criteria for selection, and timelines/deadlines,

For all other countries reprensented in IUPAC by a National
Adhering Organization, invitations will follow the awards made to Young
Chemists by the Congress itself.
