PREIN Workshop on Photonics and Chemistry

The PREIN Workshop series continues with a cross-disciplinary event bringing together researchers in photonics and chemistry on Thursday April 29, 2021 at 09:30-15:00 in Zoom organised by Tampere University. The event is free of charge and open to anyone interested. 

Please register by April 28, to receive the Zoom link to the event. Registered participants will be sent a link to the on-line event the day before the event.

The scope of the workshop:

  • Introduce project activities and technologies related to photonics and photonics related chemistry research at different PREIN research site
  • Present highlights of specific topics with high potential for collaboration
  • Introduce more researchers to the PREIN community in the form of presentations by postdocs and PhD
  • Explore new possibilities for collaboration and discuss common research topics and new project initiatives
