Modelling Workshop

On December 2, 2019 the DIFFER institute and the Instituto Superior Técnico organized the modelling workshop All about the Electron Boltzmann Equation at DIFFER, Eindhoven. Interested students and researchers learned in various talks and hands-on exercises about the possibilities and challenges of the modelling of low-temperature plasmas. The organizing committee was formed by Vasco Guerra, Paola Diomede, Pedro Viegas and Luca Vialetto. The ESRs Omar Biondo and Maik Budde joined as participants.

Electrical discharges for CO2 conversion

A seminar series was held at Università di Trento, 19-20 November 2019, organised by Paolo Tosi and Giorgio Dilecce.

Speakers included Sara Quercetti, Cesare Montesano and Matteo Ceppelli, young researchers from Uiversità di Trento, and Vasco Guerra, from IST, Universidade de Lisboa

KEROGREEN Workshop

The plasma/catalysis conversion of CO2 is investigated by a diverse community, which is targeting the issue from different directions with various methods and several objectives. In order to benefit from a different point of view multiple ESRs and supervisors of the PIONEER project attended a workshop of the KEROGREEN project on Plasma catalysis for renewable Fuels and Chemicals (November 15 2019) at DIFFER in Eindhoven.

Kick off meeting

The PIONEER Kick off meeting will take place in Paris on February 11 and 12 on the Jussieu campus of Sorbonne University. About 30 people representing all partners will be present to get the project on track!
