BioSC Workshop: “Applied Perennial Plant Pulping”

Otto Bayer Saal | Worringerweg 1-2| 52074 Aachen

 

Process Design for Integrated Biorefinery Concepts
A future bio based economy needs novel concepts for integrated biorefineries. Understanding the current capabilities, barriers, and opportunities for such an integrated biorefinery working to produce biochemicals, bioproducts, and biofuels is a prerequisite for young scientists in the whole field of bioeconomy.

Aims
This workshop targets to provide knowledge on different strategies existing for the conversion of biomass and is especially for PhD Students, Post-Docs and early stage researchers. This will offer a unique chance to get closer insight on the topic of lignocellulose processing provided by experts from academia and industry.

Program
The workshop consists of two parts. Starting with lectures about the corresponding activities in the BioSC and is followed by an interactive workshop on Process Design for Biorefineries. This part will give you the opportunity to understand the process of designing a suitable processing chain to get from a substrate to a product by choosing from different downstream options.

Registration
The first part is free for any interested attendees. The interactive workshop is limited to registered PhD-students from the BioSC.

Non-Photochemical Quenching Workshop

Studying Response to Excess Light Energy

Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf

Institute for Quantitative and Theoretical Biology
Organizers: Oliver Ebenhöh, Anna Matuszyńska

-->Poster

Aims and Scope
This interdisciplinary workshop aims at bringing together a diverse group of researchers working on non-photochemical quenching mechanisms in plants and marine organisms. It will provide a platform for a focused discussion and exchange of cross-disciplinary ideas and results. The topics of the workshop will include various aspects of NPQ, ranging from molecular mechanisms of quenching, over new measuring techniques to constructing theoretical descriptions of the process and mathematical modelling. Aside of lectures conducted by worldwide experts in NPQ research, there will be a significant time devoted to gain hands-on experience in using mathematical models. By holding the event in bioeconomy-oriented industrial environment of North Rhein-Westphalia, we aim at devoting a significant amount of time to the economics of production and use of biological resources, highlighting the importance of research on environmental acclimation.

Invited speakers
We are happy to announce that following speakers confirmed their participation in the workshop:

  • Prof. David M. Kramer (Michigan State University)
  • Prof. Roberto Bassi (University of Verona)
  • Prof. Michel Goldschmidt-Clermont (University of Geneva)
  • Prof. Giovanni Finazzi (CNRS Grenoble)
  • Prof. Peter Jahns (Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf)
  • Dr. Angela Falciatore (Université Pierre et Marie Curie)

Program
The scientific programme runs from Tuesday, September 22, 9:00, to Friday, September 25, 12:00. On Tuesday afternoon/evening a social event is planned. Detailed schedule will be posted soon.

Registration
The workshop is designed to bring together a group of around 20 participants in an early stage of their scientific career. If you wish to apply for the workshop, please send your CV together with a motivation letter to Anna Matuszyńska (please use the Subject "NPQ workshop: Registration") until 31st of July.

Fee
Participation is free of charge for members of BioSC.
