Are there plans to put together a safety symposium, too? Or is this the only one that has (nominal) overlap with safety?

All, especially our members on the western Pacific rim:
The following symposium will be presented at the 2020 PacificChem conference. As stated below, we need more contributors from the western Pacific.

Topic Area: Chemical Education and Communication

Proposal Title: Chemical Business Best Practices for Global Challenges

Proposal Description:

Description/Focus and Content: Start-up, small, and growing businesses are a major source of economic development within the Pacific Rim countries and scientific, technology, and engineering advances in the commercial sector are measured by their utility in the broader, worldwide community. Technical competence remains the core for students studying chemistry, science, and engineering, but an increasing fraction of graduates will find employment in sectors other than traditional academia and large focused industry. Interdisciplinary, innovative, and nimble small entities are taking a larger share of the market and successful entrepreneurs leverage their skill-set to overcome the market barriers that exist with large and established competitors. This session will hold toolkit and best practices so as to provide students and chemical professionals with perspectives for building success into the future. Beyond technical skills, this symposium will focus on international issues !
regarding business collaboration, intellectual property, finance, safety, design, cultural norms, and communication.

We are specially interested in safety practices for small to medium size companies and commercial labs.


Safety is the practice of fixed and unbendable principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.
