Despina Emmanouilidou from Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) was visiting, June 28th-July 2nd, the University of Potsdam (UP) for training and networking purposes within the NanoPAT project. After the first year of the NanoPAT project, the aim of the visit was an intensive training by PDWS experts at innoFSPECPotsdam, with a focus on zeolite synthesis and first experiments with offline and inline photon density wave spectroscopy (PDWS). Additionally, measurement of zeolite properties with reference methods exclusively available in Potsdam were planned.
Of course, the physically meeting of different project partners of the NanoPAT consortium from 3 different European countries (ZHAW / Switzerland, UPV / Spain, UP & PDWA / Germany – as UPV and ZHAW visited UP at the same time, as reported here) all working together in one place was already a cause for celebration in times of coronavirus crisis.
