Sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry, MICRA is biennial event which brings together junior inorganic chemistry academics from across the UK in a three day conference to aid their development into successful, independent researchers through networking and exchange of experiences.

Each participant delivers a talk on their background and current position and field of research. Representatives of the RSC and of the EPSRC will also be present to advise on available research funding routes. In addition, two to three established researchers of high standing are invited to reflect on their own career and share advice on how to become a successful academic.


Plenary guest speakers include:

RSC Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize Award Lecture (public event –all welcome)
Dr Adrian Chaplin, University of Warwick

University of Bath Honorary Degree Award Lectures (public event –all welcome)
Professor Robert H. Crabtree, Yale University
Professor Philip P. Power, University of California, Davis


Target Audience

The event targets early career researchers (senior post-doctoral researchers, junior lecturers and research fellows) across all aspects of Inorganic Chemistry, including:

  • Transition metal coordination chemistry
  • Organometallics
  • Main group chemistry
  • Computational inorganic chemistry
  • Metal catalysis
  • Bioinorganic chemistry
  • Solid state materials chemistry

Please note: More details will be updated on the event homepage (http://go.bath.ac.uk/micra2016) as they become available.
