Join us for the SINCHEM & PHOTOTRAIN WINTER SCHOOL from February, 12th to February 14th, 2018 at the Department of Industrial Chemistry, "Toso Montanari", University of Bologna.

The SINCHEM & PHOTOTRAIN WINTER SCHOOL will be held on February 12th, 13th and 14th, 2018 at the Department of Industrial Chemistry "Toso Montanari", AULA 5 located on Viale Risorgimento 4, in Bologna.

This is the Fifth SINCHEM WINTER School, traditionally dedicated to Sustainable Industrial Chemistry. This edition will be jointly organized with the PHOTOTRAIN Innovative Training Network

The event is also organized in collaboration with the Group Interdivisional Catalysis (GIC) , the Division of Industrial Chemistry of the SCI, and the Department of Industrial Chemistry "Toso Montanari".

 The seminars will be held in English and are organized as part of the PhD programmes Erasmus Mundus SINCHEM ( ) and ITN Phototrain ( ) . 

Participation is free but registration is mandatory! Please register before Friday, February the 5th, 2018.


SINCHEM is a three-year international joint Doctoral Programme in Sustainable Industrial Chemistry offered by a consortium of 33 partner institutions (7 full partners and 26 associated members). Strong industrial links to major companies in the field are a key part of the Consortium. “Turn research into jobs/business through innovation” is one of the key statements of the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry (SusChem).  SINCHEM aims to foster this vision in the field of PhD student education. 


Funded by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions of the European H2020 programme, PHOTOTRAIN is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) with 13 global partners from both notable academic institutions and leading industry leaders. The project offers an ambitious inter- and multidisciplinary training programme for 14 early stage researchers (ESR).  The main focus of this project is the conversion of solar energy starting from the fundamental bases (photophysics), and including the design of photoactive molecules (organic chemistry) and the materials (colloidal chemistry), the study of the photoinduced processes (photochemistry and microscopy), performing and studying the reactions (physical chemistry), building a microfluidic photoreactor (physics and engineering), and planning an industrial-scalable chemical process.
