Pressemitteilung: Von der Natur lernen, Ressourcen effektiver nutzen und schädliche Auswirkungen vermeiden - 5 Trendsetter für den LUM Wissenschaftspreis YSA 2022 nominiert

Vom 24. bis 25. Januar 2022 veranstaltet die LUM GmbH die 10. Internationale Konferenz zur Dispersionsanalyse und Materialtestung.

Prof. Dr. Dr. Lerche, Vorsitzender des Wissenschaftlichen Komitees und LUM Geschäftsführer:

“Seit 2014 wird von uns der Young Scientist Award (YSA) für herausragende wissenschaftliche Leistungen auf den Gebieten Partikel- und Dispersionscharakterisierung sowie Materialtestung ausgeschrieben und nach festgelegten Qualitätskriterien auf der Konferenz vergeben.

Die COVID-19 bedingte Verlegung der Präsenzveranstaltung auf einen virtuellen Termin im Januar erfolgt mit einem lachenden und einem weinenden Auge. Wir freuen uns aus einem Dutzend qualifizierter Bewerbungen aus allen Erdteilen wissenschaftlich spannende und aktuelle Themen durch die nominierten Kandidaten in einen Austausch mit den Konferenzteilnehmern zu bringen. Durch den erstmaligen und hoffentlich einmaligen virtuellen Charakter der Veranstaltung werden aber die wertvollen Hintergrund- und Pausengespräche anders als bei den bewährten Livekonferenzen verlaufen. Nichtsdestotrotz stehen auch diesmal der interdisziplinäre Austausch und das Netzwerken im Vordergrund.“


Fünf Kandidaten aus Südamerika und Europa sind 2022 nominiert und werden auf Einladung auf der virtuellen Konferenz mit ihren interessanten Ergebnissen erwartet.

Press release: Learn from nature, use resources more effectively and avoid harmful effects - 5 trendsetters nominated for the LUM Science Award YSA 2022

From January 24th to 25th, 2022, LUM GmbH will host the 10th International Conference for Dispersion Analysis and Materials Testing.
Prof. Dr. Dr. Lerche, chairman of the scientific committee and LUM managing director:
“We have been promoting the Young Scientist Award (YSA) for outstanding scientific achievements in the fields of particle and dispersion characterization and materials testing since 2014 and awarding it at the conference according to defined quality criteria.
The COVID-19-related rescheduling of the face-to-face event to a virtual appointment in January takes place with a laughing and a crying eye. We are pleased to bring scientifically exciting and current topics from a dozen qualified applications from all parts of the world to an exchange with the conference participants through the nominated candidates. Due to the first-time and hopefully unique virtual character of the event, the valuable background and break discussions will run differently than with approved live conferences. Nonetheless, this time, too, the focus is on interdisciplinary exchange and networking."

Five candidates from South America and Europe are nominated in 2022 and are expected to attend the virtual conference with their interesting results upon invitation.
