SPEA10

Few members of our group have attended the 10th European meeting on Solar Chemistry and Photocatalysis: Environmental Applications (SPEA10), held in Almería, Spain, on June 4th – 8th 2018. We have presented 3 lectures and 3 posters. The schedule of the conference was haeavily packed with lectures worth listening to. We are now back in Poland with new knowledge and ideas for future work!

TEAM

Prof. Wojciech Macyk and dr Joanna Kuncewicz are laureates of the prestigeous Foundation for Polish Science TEAM project. The project entitled “In quest of a more efficient quantum solar energy exploitation in energy downhill and uphill photocatalytic processes (INGENIOUS)” goals are to elaborate various photocatalytic and hybrid photocatalytic/catalytic materials with significantly improved efficiencies of quantum solar energy utilization.

 

Professorial nomination

On October 26, 2016, the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda, nominated 99 academic teachers and employees of science and art at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw. Among the nominees there was Wojciech Macyk.

PRELUDIUM project granted

MSc. Marcin Surówka obtained a grant from National Science Centre within PRELUDIUM 8 programme. The project goal and title are “Charakterystyka spektroskopowa i fotokatalityczna materiałów opartych na tlenku tytanu(IV) modyfikowanych różnymi tlenkami metali”.

Congratulations!

 

Invited lecture

Prof. Paweł Kulesza from University of Warsaw was our guest today.

Conferences

In September and October our results were presented at several conferences in Poland and abroad:
