ECHC 2021

XXIX European Colloquium on Heterocyclic Chemistry

 Virtual Event    April 26-28, 2021

After having postponed the conference by one year, the decision has now been made to switch the XXIX European Colloquium on Heterocyclic Chemistry to a fully virtual event. The programme will be reorganised to meet the needs of this Virtual Conference, but the dates will remain the same.

Besides a stimulating scientific programme, get prepared to also virtually discover the city of Rouen, the capital of the northern French region of Normandy and host of the virtual conference.


The ECHC is an open meeting dealing with all aspects of heterocyclic chemistry with international renown speakers and participants from academia and industry. The aim of the meeting is to present new results and stimulate interactions between academia and industry. 

Although the event will get virtual, we will maximise networking opportunities, as interactions between academia and industry remain key, also for young scientists.

The 3 following topics will be covered:

  • Synthetic Methodology & Catalysis
  • Chemical Biology & Medicinal chemistry
  • Material Sciences

Since its foundation in 1962, 28 ECHC meetings have been organised all over Europe and the ECHC series have grown to be major events in the field with world class speakers.

The scientific programme will include 12 plenary lectures, 10 invited lectures and many short oral communications selected from submitted abstracts, as well as poster communications.
