Organising Committee

The board members of the youth division of KVCV (Jong-KVCV) organise ChemCYS on a voluntary basis. They are all young scientists currently active at one of the Flemish academic institutions or at chemical companies located in Belgium.

Karel Haesevoets
Centre for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis
Leuven University & imec

As president of ChemCYS, Karel is the conference’s face. Karel has four years of experience within Jong-KVCV and was responsible for the KaféCV networking event during the 2016 edition. His mission is to build on the work and successes of his predecessors and make the next ChemCYS an unforgettable experience.



Niels Van Herck
Department of chemistry
Ghent University

Niels is a fresh new member of the Jong-KVCV board. He depicts great potential and enthusiasm taking up the task of secretary and thus plays a major role in attracting funding, handling endorsements and communication with our members.




Maarten Verheijen
Department of Chemistry
Hasselt University

Our budgeting will be covered by Maarten, who will act as conference treasurer. Handling expenses and revenue comes as a second nature to him. He proved his capabilities while he was ChemCYS treasurer for the 2016 edition. Maarten is also the acting treasurer for Jong-KVCV.
