Scientists from the University of Cambridge visited the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy, University of Sofia

Within the frame of the Materials Networking Project, funded from the EU Horizon 2020 programme, from 17th to 20th of July, 2018, the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy was visited by worldwide known researchers from the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, UK. Prof. Lindsey Greer, Head of Physical Sciences Division of the University and Member of the Energy@Cambridge Strategic Advisory Board, visited the Faculty on 20th of July and presented a talk entitled “Extending the applicability of the glassy state”.

 During his visit, Prof. Greer had a meeting with the Vice Rector of University of Sofia Assoc. Prof. Eliza Stefanova and discussed topics of mutual interest connected with cooperation between the two universities in education and science.

 

 Prof. Vasant Kumar and Dr. Rumen Tomov visited the Faculty from 18th to 19th of July, 2018. Prof. Kumar presented a lecture entitled Sustainability of Materials in the Evolving Energy-Environment Paradigm”. During their visit the scientists from University of Cambridge had a meeting with the Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy, Sofia University as well as they had discussions on joint research topics and collaborations with scientists from the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy.

Meeting with journalists

On June 28th, 2018, at the Conference Hall of the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy, Sofia University “St. Kl. Ohridski ” a presentation of the main activities carried out so far within the project” Materials Networking “, funded under the call TWINNING of the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission, took place. Journalists from different media were invited and attended the meeting. The meeting started with a description of the project, its objectives and major achievements presented by Prof. Georgi Vayssilov, Coordinator of the project. Afterwards, the main scientific topics of the research groups from the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy, participating in the project, were presented. A brief discussion was held with the mass media representatives, followed by a lab tour showing three of the most advanced laboratories in the Faculty, namely the Pharmacognosy Laboratory, the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Laboratory,  and the Transmission Electron Microscopy Laboratory.
