Chemicals and fuels from catalytic conversion of lignin – opportunities and challenges?

This is the title that Camilla Løhre has been given for her trial lecture for the PhD degree. The lecture gives an introduction to the chemistry of catalytic conversion of lignin to high-value products for the biofuel- and chemical industry. Specifically it will address the current status of large-scale catalytic conversion of lignin and identify future perspectives.

Chris goes to Columbus

Chris

Based on his academic accomplishments and the scientific merit of his research, Chris Stavaas has been selected by the organizers to become one of 26 participants in the 2016 SciFinder Future Leaders program. This implies a week-long skills- and network-building program in Columbus, Ohio, before travelling to Philadelphia to attend the 252nd ACS National Meeting & Exposition. We congratulate Chris on this opportunity and look forward to his extensive travel report, hereby scheduled for a Thursday chemistry talk!

Interesting lecture: The shape of Big Data

Volterra lecture by professor Gunnar Carlsson, Department of Mathematics, Stanford University

dln_VolterraLectureAbstract: There is a lot of discussion around «Big Data», which refers to the large and complex data sets currently being gathered about scientific, engineering, and commercial problems.  Although the size of the data is certainly a significant roadblock to the goal of obtaining useful information and knowledge from the data, the complexity of the data is often a more significant hurdle.  This means that there is a need for a new organizing principle and modeling mechanism, and it turns out that topology (the mathematical study of shape) can be used to provide such an organizing principle. The talk will discuss these ideas, with many examples involving life sciences data.

HMS- og strategidag

160613_hmsdag_1Mandag 13. juni heldt Kjemisk institutt ein kombinert HMS- og strategidag på fiskebaren Von Tangen i Sandviken. Litt kummerlige konferansefasilitetar blei meir enn kompensert for av ein flott historisk atmosfære i den gamle fiskehandlerbua. Forsamlinga gav verdifulle bidrag til arbeidsmiljøet gjennom god og humørfyllt innsats i ulike gruppearbeid knytt til uformelle sosiale møteplassar, faglege møteplassar, analysar av kulturen på instituttet samt vurdering av tiltak for betre studiemiljø. Innimellom sjøbein og arbeid blei det også tid til å nyte sommarsol, sjøbris og gamal maritim teknologi!160613_hmsdag_2b

Norges kraftigste magnet på plass i Bergen!

160531_850MHzOffisiell åpning av Den norske NMR-plattformen

Torsdag 16. juni kl. 13:30–18:00, i Auditoriet i VilVite

Åpningen vil blant annet inneholde en serie foredrag av anerkjente norske og internasjonale forskere. Etter foredragene, ca kl 1630, blir det snorklipping og lett bevertning i NNP-bygget, aka Verkstedsbygget (Thormøhlensgate 55A), der 850MHz-instrumentet er plassert. Der vil besøkende få anledning til å ta det nye laboratoriet i nærmere øyensyn.

The Pope meets Leiv!

Professor Leiv K. Sydnes was involved as an organizer of and lecturer at the IUPAC conference CHEMRAWN XXI Solid Urban Waste Management, which took place in Rome, Italy April 6-8. For further details, press here.Pavemøte- amatørbilde

The day after the conference he was invited to meet the Pope after the Saturday service at Piazza San Pietro. Pope Francis is very concerned about environmental issues and just sharing of resources, and last year he hosted a high-level meeting with focus on economic inequalities and protection of the natural environment.
