Paweł Mikrut was nominated for the international “Scientist of the Future” Award in the category of “Exact and Technical Sciences for an Innovative Future”.
The Photocatalysis group has been awarded the title of the symbol of the synergy of science and business 2019.
The Team of Photocatalysis has been granted with almost 1.4 million zloty for the joint Polish-Chinese research project entitled “Photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide based on p-type semiconductors”. The project is supported by the National Science Centre, Poland (NCN) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). Together with the group of Prof. Jiaguo Yu from Wuhan University of Technology we will focus on the development of p-type semiconducting photocatalysts, used alone or in combination with n-type semiconductors, for a more efficient solar fuels production encompassing one- and multi-electron CO2 reduction. Briefly, the artificial photosynthesis is our goal!
On November 8 this year in the hall of the Faculty of Chemistry of the Jagiellonian University, the 15th anniversary of CITTRU was held. During the meeting prizes were awarded for constant, long-term cooperation with business partners bringing continuous and highest revenues in the JU for the provision of commercial research and expert services. The awards for commercialization of research results were given to prof. Wojciech Macyk with his team (Dr. Rafał Sadowski and Dr. Przemysław Łabuz).

Prof. Sebastian Maćkowski, prof. Joanna Niedziółka-Jönsson and prof. Wojciech Macyk obtained a grant from National Science Centre within OPUS 12 programme. The project “Remotely light-controlled activity of dyes, proteins and catalysts: imaging, sensing and energy conversion” is intended to show that the energy of photons illuminating a nanowire can be transported to its other end, and that this energy is capable to activate and deactivate nanostructures, which are important from the point of view of imaging, sensorics or energy conversion.
Dr. Joanna Kuncewicz obtained a grant from National Science Centre within SONATA 13 programme. The project goal and title are “Studies on the interaction of semiconductors with metal-organic frameworks (MOF) and its influence on photoinduced processes”.
Professor Wojciech Macyk is the laureate of the prestigious Award of the Minister of Science and Higher Education for outstanding scientific achievements in 2017. The awards ceremony took place on December 11, 2017 in Łazienki Królewskie Park, Warsaw.
The prizes were awarded for outstanding scientific achievements, individual and collective didactic achievements and organizational successes in the past year. During the ceremony, Minister Gowin said: “Looking at the winners, I know that Polish science is getting better and better, and Polish academics have reached the world level.”
