NordForsk meeting in CPH
During our visit to Denmark, it was interesting to see the Danish focus on being CO2-neutral.
Annette, Kathrin, Ljiljana, Aya and Diego are at EuCOMC 2019 in Helsinki (June 16-20, https://www.helsinki.fi/en/conferences/eucomc-xxiii), enjoying amazing talks on organometallic CO2 activation. Kathrin will give her plenary lecture on Thursday at 9:00.
CHOCO PI Kathrin is leading AWORA (the UiT Academy for Women in Research and Arts). Join our next AWORA meeting on microagressive behaviour in academia on Monday 29th of April at 10:30 in Ardna at UiT: https://www.facebook.com/events/394240781432167/
The CHOCO group is leading the Nordic Consortium for CO2 Conversion (NordCO2), a Nordic University Hub financed by NordForsk and the 9 participating Universities. NordCO2 has just released its first annual report, which is for the year 2018. Read it at: NordCO2_AnnualReport2018
The CHOCO team welcomes Dr. Ainara Nova (UiO) as an Assoc. Prof-II (20% position) in the CHOCO group. Ainara will work together with us on computational catalysis and give courses, for example about microkinetic modelling. She will also increase the number of female PIs in computational chemistry at the department by 100%. 🙂
The CHOCO group has obtained funding from the Arctic Centre for Sustainable Energy for starting research on biomass (which we will couple with CO2 to make oil-free chemicals).
We will characterize different types of biomass for this purpose, together with our new collaborator Prof. Kirsten Krause at BFE.
CHOCO PI Kathrin has just published an Editorial in Organometallics: “How To Make Your Computational Paper Interesting and Have It Published“. Read it here
An interview with CHOCO PI Kathrin was the most read article on kifinfo in 2018.
