About the Event

Flow Chemistry Europe 2024 (FCE-24) the 12th event of the Flow Chemistry Europe conference series

FCE-24 will comprise two days of rich scientific and technical content, featuring an array of keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, as well as an exhibition showcasing the latest advancements in flow chemistry products and services. The conference will be held in-person, offering excellent networking opportunities.

The conference will cover a wide spectrum of topics that encompass the core facets of flow chemistry, including advanced synthetic methods, automation/machine learning, high throughput experimentation, automation and AI, continuous manufacturing in the industry, scale up of flow chemistry, and space flow chemistry.

We extend a warm invitation to young scientists to submit their groundbreaking research and unpublished work to the FCE-24 Poster Session. The best posters will be awarded.

FCE-24 promises to be an unforgettable gathering in the renowned Costa del Sol, and we look forward to your participation!

Mission statement

About 40 devoted scientists and researchers founded the Flow Chemistry Society (FCS) in the fall of 2010 in Switzerland with the goal of providing a self-organizing forum for flow chemists in both the academic and industrial sectors, raising awareness and educating the chemist community, stimulating advancement, and enhancing public appreciation of flow chemistry.

The FCS’s mission is to stimulate the development of flow chemistry and its integration into everyday practice throughout the world for the benefit and progress of the chemistry community, including pharmaceutical, agro, fine-chemical, petro-chemical, fragrance industries, as well as in green chemistry and novel catalysis research. Since then, the Society has grown rapidly and gained respect both within Europe and internationally.

The FCS also intends to foster the introduction of a new paradigm in organic chemistry by encouraging the transition of the current organic synthesis processes into a more rapid and continuous set of synthesis operations, which are more compatible with the sustainable world we envision.

The FCS is strongly devoted to promoting the implementation of this ground-breaking technology into laboratory practice, to encouraging contact between the scientists, and to facilitating the widespread dissemination of new findings.

The first Flow Chemistry Europe conference was organized in this spirit in 2011 in Munich, Germany in collaboration with Mr. Ken Browne’s company SelectBioSciences.  Since then, we’ve held a conference every year with a few exceptions, with a steadily growing interest. Each conference presents a Best Poster Award to a young scientist whose findings are novel and relate to an engaging area of the discipline.

In addition to the regular conference program, an Industrial flash-presentation session will be held, where the exhibitors will introduce their chosen products/services.
