Supramolecular Chemistry Day – Virtual Edition (2nd edition) #SupraChemDay

Due to the current situation (COVID-19 Pandemics) this year we have transformed this event in a Twitter Poster Session. It will take place on October 22nd 2020 on Twitter.
We expect the participation of young researchers working on the field of supramolecular chemistry field from quite different perspectives presenting their research in a virtual poster session held entirely over Twitter. We want to bring the young scientists of the research area together to share their research, network and engage in scientific discussions. Moreover, we will have the opportunity to listen to researchers from NOAH and INFUSION European projects presenting their results in October 23th 2020 (10-13 am) in the format of flash presentations. Audience from people outside the Consortium will be welcomed.

Register for free here and win one of the three prizes for the best three posters!


Under the motto “Who is Who in European Science” Pedro Ferreira (ESR1) and Chiara Mirabella (ESR10) based at ICIQ participated in the European Researchers night (September 2019) jointly with other researchers from 7 different European Innovative Training Networks (ITNs) and the Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA). The event took place at the FabCafe Barcelona with an entertaining evening full of activities: 1) Podium Discussion and Exhibition “Bridging STEM to STEAM: Why art can be more than a communication tool in science and technology?”; 2) Research Project Exhibition; 3) Speed dating with Scientists and 4) BCN Science Slam.

Within the 1st NOAH school we are celebrating the Supramolecular Chemistry Day. The scientific program will include as lecturers  Prof. Jonathan Nitschke (University of Cambridge),  Prof. Michael Schmittel (Universität Siegen) and Dr. Alessandro Aliprandi (Université de Strasbourg). Prof. Jennifer M. Heemstra (Emory University), speaker invited by the ICIQ seminar programme sponsored by BASF will also deliver a talk within this day.

Moreover, our researchers will also present the latest results of the NOAH project. This will help on NOAH research dissemination to scientists outside the Consortium.

Lunch and Poster session


14:45 h NOAH members flash presentations
15:30 Coffee Break
15:45 h Prof. Michael Schmittel From self-sorting of dynamic metal-phenanthroline complexes to (supra)molecular machinery in action   



16:45 h Dr. Alessandro Aliprandi Luminiscent Pt(II) complexes and their assemblies   



We expect the participation of young researchers working on the field of functional nanocontainers from quite different perspectives presenting their research in the poster session. The young scientists participating in this day will be exposed to this field of research from a multidisciplinary and broad perspective. It represents a perfect venue to propagate excellent research and serves to educate and motivate the next generation of young researchers.

The following day the 1st NOAH Industry day will take place. The non-academic partners of the NOAH Consortium will deliver three different lectures. This will include R&D at a big company (Dr. S. Eiden, COVESTRO Deutschland), at a medium size company (Dr. A. Wiehe, Biolitec GmbH) and at a technological centre (Dr. C. Ayats, Leitat). The Industry day aims to help setting up links between the industrial and academic partnerships and motivate ESRs to establish future collaborations with the industry.
