EACH Winter School 2021 Group Photo

On Jan 18, 2021, the sixth Winter School https://each.ut.ee/EACH/each-winter-school/ of the EACH programme started. Altogether 33 students from 21 countries participate.

As is typical to the COVID-19 era, this year’s Winter School takes place on-line and with a limited scope. Nevertheless, the Winter School offers several lectures-seminars on how analytical chemistry is vital for a most diverse range of human activities ranging from industrial process control (Dr. Franck Baco-Antoniali, Axel’One https://www.axel-one.org/) to synthesis of drugs and their intermediates (Dr. Piia Liigand, TBD Biodiscovery https://biodiscovery.eu/) and from renewable energy (Robert Järviste, Skeleton Technologies https://www.skeletontech.com/) to cultural heritage research (Prof. Hilkka Hiiop, Estonian Academy of Arts https://www.artun.ee/).

Traditionally an important activity in the Winter school is selecting first year students to study tracks. In order to give one more piece of information what the study tracks are about, there was a session of presentations on the first day by second year students on their master thesis topics (photo on the right).
