Promotional activity

Active support – today for tomorrow

Dear school-leavers, future students, graduates, newcomers to the profession: the SGVC would like to support you as much as it can to help you move forward in your career and always find out more about the fascinating world of process and chemical engineering technology. Use our association to find out important information and meet the right people. We can offer you the following specific support:


Our events are a single major networking service: this is where lecturers and practitioners, old hands and young researchers, the department manager from the local pharmaceutical company and the reaction technology specialist, who has just come back from a period abroad, all meet up. In a relaxed atmosphere you can all ask the questions on the tips of your tongues and make important contacts for your entry into the profession.
