JBIC Symposium – Energy Conversion Inspired by Bioinorganic Chemistry

4 May 2021

Tue, May 4, 2021 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM CEST

This 2.5 h online-only Symposium features the latest research on Bioinorganic Chemistry for Energy Conversion, presented by JBIC

About this Event

Energy Conversion and Storage is one of the mega topics of the future, and as such also a hot topic in Bioinorganic Chemistry. Building on established kowledge of biological systems, novel chemistry is needed to transform small molecules into valuable feedstock. This symposium shines light on the most recent developments in this rapidly developing area of Bioinorganic Chemistry, presented by some of the leading scientists of the field. The symposium co-host is Dr. Wendy Shaw, Division Director of Physical & Computational Sciences, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.


The Symposium is scheduled for May 4, 2021, 14 – 17 h ET (Eastern Time = New York Time = UTC-4).


The symposium will feature five speakers in two subsequent sessions, in total about 2.5 hours of focused content and discussion. Each contribution will be 15 min., plus five minutes reserved for discussion. There will be virtual Breakout rooms with each individual speaker during the break after each session in order to facilitate interaction with participants (especially PhDs and postdocs).


The symposium will be online only and broadcasted as a life event through Zoom. Registration until 24 h before the event is mandatory for participation. A link will be emailed to all registered participants prior to the meeting.
