Cellulose dissolution and regeneration, Workshop, 3–4 December 2013, Gothenburg, Sweden
COST Action FP1205 held its second workshop meeting on ”Cellulose dissolution and regeneration” in Gothenburg, Sweden, on December 3–4, 2013, with more than 50 participants from universities, research institutes and companies.
The first day of the meeting was linked to the Troëdsson seminar series 2013-2014. Guest speakers on the first day was Herbert Sixta (Aalto University, Finland), Thomas Heinze (Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Germany) and Patrick Narvard, Ecole des Mines de Paris, France).
The second day was mainly allocated to Early Stage Researchers, with presentation of their research within the field of cellulose dissolution and regeneration and posters within the theme for COST FP1205.
The meetings were funded by “The Troëdsson Foundation”, ”The Södra Forest-owners foundation for research, development and education” and COST.
