The Early Career Colloid committee was established to provide a forum for discussion and facilitate knowledge exchange for early career scientists in all aspects of Colloid Science. Primarily aimed at early career scientists in academia and industry. We organise an annual meeting to bring together the two communities to discuss their current activities and provide training and networking opportunities.
Our parent committee, the Joint Colloids Group is the joint committee of the SCI Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group and the RSC Colloid & Interface Science Group. The Joint Colloids Group organises regular one- or two- day meetings, and a triennial international conference, UK Colloids (the next one 20-22 July 2020 in Liverpool) and administers three awards that celebrate the success of outstanding researchers in colloid science: early stage (McBain), mid-career (Thomas Graham) and life-time achievement (Rideal).
