Arrangementsstøtte for Organisk Kjemisk Vintermøte 12-15. januar 2017

Awarded: NOK 0.12 mill.

The 32th Organic Winter Meeting will take place at Thon Hotel Skeikampen on Thursday January 12th to Sunday January 15th 2017. This conference is the annual national meeting in organic chemistry in Norway, and it is held under the umbrella of the Division of Organic Chemistry of the Norwegian Chemical Society. The conference invites 4-5 foreign scientist, who are internationally recognized experts in their fields of research, to give plenary lectures. The organic chemistry of this conference is viewed as an assembly encompassing not just the traditional organic synthesis, but extending into areas of mechanism, biological chemistry and biotechnology. The topics covered will provide inspiration to procure sustainable raw materials and value added products from biomass, and enables chiral and highly functionalized compounds to be produced ecologically for the chemical and pharmaceutical applications. We anticipate over 100 delegates including MSc, Ph student, Postdocs and Senior scientist. Our Plenary Lectures this year will be delivered by Professors Rebecca Goss (St Andrews, UK), Vito Capriati (Bari, IT), Donald Hilvert (ETH, CH) and Kenneth Wärnmark (Lund, SE), along with 22 lectures and 40 posters.
