Online conference, September 23 – 24
Treesearch Progress 2020 goes online! Due to the current situation with the ongoing pandemic, Treesearch is converting the 2020 Progress conference to a two half-days online event. During these days, this online conference will just as the regular Treesearch Progress give you an update of the ongoing research within Treesearch!
Treesearch Progress is a scientific conference with speakers from Treesearch presenting the latest scientific advances and the progress of the platform.
This second Treesearch Progress will be held as an online conference during two half-days. The conference is open for you who are associated to Treesearch or working in a Treesearch partner organisation. Read more about the Treesearch Progress conference concept >>
Day 1: Research in collaboration with the industry – projects from Treesearch's and BioInnovation's call 2017
The first day of the conference is dedicated the projects from Treesearch’s and BioInnovation’s call Research studies in collaboration with the industry. In total 11 doctoral and postdoctoral projects that aim at developing new materials, conducted in collaboration with industries, were supported. During this day you will have the chance to listen to results from some of the projects.
Day 2: Research presentations by young researchers
Now you can find the first posters and pitches for the presentations and more will come! Follow the link to take part of this online session, available both before and after the conference!
