2022 PhD confernce of the German Adsorption Society

Held in Erlangen (Germany), this PhD seminar on Adsorption is organized by Matthias Thommes' group on September 29th/30th. As part of the FRA/GER initiative efforts, the German Adsorption Society opens this "PhD conference" to French students and non-permanent staff (master/doctoral students, postdocs). This initiative is an excellent opportunity for the non-permanent members of our communities to broaden their perspectives but also to establish links beyond our borders.

Young Scientist Exchange

Recently, Jean-Wilfried Vignile Hounfodji, a PhD student from University of Abomey-Calavi (BENIN)/University of Lorraine (FRANCE), joined Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern for 6 months funded by the MPI guest program (Max-Planck-Institut für Dynamik komplexer technischer Systeme). Jean-Wilfried will measure and analyze breakthrough curves in the lab in Magdeburg, Germany. This will be a good preparation for his subsequent PostDoc stay with Prof. Michael Badawi at University of Lorraine.
