About the Meeting of Young Chemical Engineers

The first Meeting of Young Chemical Engineers took place in 1996, and is traditionally organised every two years by the Croatian Society of Chemical Engineers (CSCE) and the University of Zagreb Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology (FCET).

The last XIV Meeting of Young Chemical Engineers had more than 260 participants and 193 poster and oral presentations, with participants from Croatia, but also from Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and the United Kingdom, giving the meeting an international character.

We are looking forward seeing you on February 22 and 23, 2024!
