Programm GSS Summer School 2016

17TH - 20TH OF MAY 2016

Between May 17 and May 20 the GSS Summer School 2016 took place. The first two lecture days focused on the role of the solvent in activity and selectivity of nanostructured electrocatalysts. The third lecture day covered theoretical aspects of solvation thermodynamics and experimental techniques for studying solvent effects on optical activity. Please see below for a list of confirmed speakers.

On Friday, 20th of May the advanced module hands-on courses will take place.
