Summer School PhotoReAct, 6-10th of June 2022

Second School PhotoReAct took place from 6 until 10 June 2022 in Bologna. Organized by the Photochemical Nanoscience Laboratory of University of Bologna in the scope of their traditional event Ciamician Photochemistry School which this year had its ninth edition under title "From Fundamentals to Applications".

The 2nd PhotoReAct school was aligned with the Ciamician photochemistry school in Bologna and the ITN meeting was dovetail onto it. The Ciamician school of photochemistry is permanent and is held every three years; starting from the 2019 edition, the school is open to international students and is held in English. The IX Ciamician Photochemistry School- From Fundamentals to Applications (6th – 10th June 2022) was organized by the Photochemical Nanoscience Laboratory of the University of Bologna, is an introductory course designed for graduate students, PhD students and researchers.

The main topics discussed during the School concerned the following:

  • theoretical aspects of electronic absorption and emission processes,
  • photochemical techniques and steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopic measurements,
  • application of photochemistry in the field of bioimaging, light harvesting antennae, molecular machines, organic reactions, solar energy conversion and medicine.

In the course of the Summer School in Bologna, a fourth Supervisory Board meeting of the PhotoReAct network took place in the hybrid format. Subjects of the meeting covered recruitment and management updates, upcoming project deliverables and secondments plan.
