European Conferences and Training in Membrane Technology


Project timeline
April 2006
48 months
March 2010
General Information
This project will conduct a series of 5 events on Membrane technology, including one conference, three summer schools, planned with a character of training, enabling young scientists to benefit from the experience of leading researchers, and one workshop:
1. Summer School "Smart Materials" will give insight on fundamental aspects of membrane preparation using self-assembly, nanocomposites and other new materials for separation techniques and energy.
2. Conference "New Materials for Membranes" Integration of new advanced materials in the membrane technology, bringing new breakthroughs.
3. Summer School "Membranes for reactive processes" will include membrane preparation, characterization and application in fuel cells and catalytic membrane reactors.
4. Summer School "Solvent resistant membranes" will focus on applications in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
5. Workshop "Advances in Membrane Technology" will focus on different aspects of membrane technology, presented mainly by highly qualified women scientists in the membrane field, stimulating the participation of young female students. The workshop will have a practical part with technical machines for membrane preparation and characterization, module manufacture, etc and will offer lectures on how to develop skills in communication, meeting moderation, project preparation.
