PIER is pleased to announce its next workshop on “Joint DESY/UHH perspectives on water research”, taking place at the CSSB auditorium on June 27th, 2022, 1 - 5:30 p.m. The workshop is chaired by Prof. Dr. Michael Fröba (UHH) and Prof. Dr. Melanie Schnell (DESY/CAU Kiel).

The aim of the event is to provide an opportunity for mutual exchange and in-depth discussion of future joint DESY and Universität Hamburg research activities in the field of water research, and it is organized in cooperation with the Centre for Molecular Water Science (CMWS), a pan-European initiative with a central hub in Hamburg.

The workshop is a follow-up to the kick-off workshop “Future joint research perspectives of DESY and Universität Hamburg in the context of Science City Hamburg Bahrenfeld” which took place on November 16th, 2021. Further information on this event on other follow-up workshops planned for this year are available on the PIER website.
