Friday Jan. 7, 2022 - 15th EC2/BIG-NSE Workshop (online)

New batch PhD students present the work plan of their future PhD

Titel: 15th EC2/BIG-NSE workshop

Lecturers: Diverse: see below

Participants: UniSysCat faculty

"Venue":  Online  - Link will be communicated a few days before start

As every year once their "initial phase" is finished, the new PhD students of EC2/BIG-NSE have the opportunity to present their PhD work plan in front of the UniSysCat community.

The first presentation is planned to start at about 13:10 and the last one to finish around 17:45. Scope of the presentations ranges from theory to application on all aspects of catalysis: Organic/Inorganic chemistry, heterogeneous catalysis, biotechnologies, biocatalysis etc.: all interested scientists are welcome!
