Biomass conversion – challenges and opportunities at Lund University

Yes! It is true!

We are BACK IRL!

LUBIRC invites you to a half-day workshop at AF Borgen to meet and discuss the ongoing challenges in biomass conversion research, as well as present what you see to be the opportunities for moving forward. We hope the occasion can be great opportunity to get together with fellow researchers in person for the first time in many months!

LUBIRC Day is open to all interested in the subject, in particular PhD students and postdocs! The workshop is in person only, and we can only accept a maximum of 40 people to the event. All participants are expected to bring a poster to inspire networking and discussions.
