Will 2014 finally be the year of economic recovery? There are signs of a stronger economy in the US and Europe. Pharma is shifting and downsizing as it works. How will all of this affect you in 2014?

The blog will discuss these and other key issues with American Chemical Society chairman Bill Carroll, in its regular Chemistry & the Economy webinar with the ACS.

The webinar will take place on Thursday at 14.00 hours Eastern Time.  Please click here for free registration.
