2022/06: The PhD students working on the research projects within the SPP 2331 were meeting in Aachen for a two-day workshop. The workshop included an introduction and project overview presentation by each project team, scientific talks by highly recognized external researchers, a tour through the biorefinery in the Aachener Verfahrenstechnik building (NGP2), and group works aiming to identify overlaps between the research projects and foster future collaborations. The workshop was further accompanied by team building events. We were very happy to meet in person with active discussions, knowledge exchange, and a lot of fun.

Congratulations to Prof. Martin Grohe
