Newsletter Feb-May 2023

Hello, and welcome to this second newsletter, where we are sharing our fresh news ! Already three months passed since our last post, and it is time to update !

We have been able to enjoy our postponed Christmas meeting ! Priviledged moment to discuss about something else than chemistry or, at least, without Powerpoint presentations.

Petr went to the University Palackého v Olomouci, to give a lecture about our research theme : Dynamic systems in chemistry. You can find the complete talk on Youtube here (in Czech).

Between February and March, it is also the time for welcoming new Erasmus interns from around the world. We are currently hosting 3 of them : Arda, from Turkey, for 6 months, Théo and Mélissa both from France, for 3 months. We wish them the best for their experiments !

These 3 months were also a good period for financial supports : Anna H. succeeded in Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (UA) call and received a grant to continue her work with us 2 years more, Harry is in the process of obtaining the OP JAK grant for post-doc research. Anna H., Martin and I also got our intra-Uni Doctoral Grant (IGA) to support our work !

We also welcome two new members : Marek (BSc 2) who will continue with DAOF catalysis topic and Jakub, engineering student who will help us to optimize the software part of our spetroscopy table. Welcome !

Congratulation to Karolina who has been graduated ! Always a pleasure to see a successful student and also always sad to say goodbye… Hopefully she is not going too far and she will even come back from time to time ! Best wishes for your next adventures Ing. Kája !

That’s all for the this time ! See you in 3 months for the next adventures of the PKLab !
