FuniMAT was present at the International Summer School Porous Materials @ Work that took place in the Technical University of Graz. Carlos delivered a keynote lecture on the chemical stability in MOFs and advantages of titanium-organic frameworks in this context. Thanks for the invitation! See here for more info.
Carmen, María, Belén, Javi and Isabel attended the last XVI Simposio de Jóvenes Investigadores de la Real Sociedad Española de Química which took place in the Universitat Politècnica of Valencia. They had the opportunity to present their recent results and interact with Spanish young researchers. More info here.
Carlos presented our recent results in photoactivity and chemical reactivity in titanium-organic frameworks at the first symposium Advancing Chemistry in Spain: Early Career ERC Researchers organized by the Universitat de les Illes Balears. See here for more info.
Carlos was invited to the workshop Innoagents organised by the Universitat de Vlència/RedTransfer and sponsored by the Agencia Valenciana de la Innovación to comment on the experience of building-up MatCO to transfer the results of the group to technological companies. See here for more info.
Through personal experience from the first year of her Bachelor´s degree at University of Alcalá until date, Isabel dropped a message of hope for students in their first year, year in which a considerable number of students drop the degree. She discussed different research opportunities during the degree, and advised in PhD search and PhD life.
We are often our biggest limitation
Aiming to overcome the gender imbalance in STEM, Isabel discussed the current statistics with last years students of IES Baleares high school and encourage them to help to achieve equality in science. Isabel showcased and discussed her research journey and advised them in pursuing a career in science.
This activity was organised by the 11deFebrero association, in which volunteers can contact high schools through an online platform and give talks at schools in celebration with the International day of Women in Science.
Belén took part in the fifth edition of FullprofSuite training organized by CIC energiGUNE (Vitoria). A great opportunity to get started in the structural analysis from powder diffraction data, that has become a useful tool in reticular chemistry. Thanks to the organizing committee! More info.
The evaluating committee of Lindau Nobel Meeting selected Isabel to participate in the 70th anniversary of this landmark event. It gathers Nobel Laureates and young scientists from over a hundred countries in an informal and open atmosphere. The meeting will cover the areas of Chemitry, Physics and Physiology or Medicine.
