A series of lectures on the topic of “Electrical discharges for CO2 conversion” was organized at University of Trento, Italy, by Paolo Tosi and Giorgio Dilecce, November 19th & 20th 2019:

During the Keep-in-touch meeting of the N-PRiME group at Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon invited guest present their field of research. On November 2nd 2021 a member of Pioneer was invited

  • Richard Engeln : Vibrational kinetics of CO2 in non-thermal plasma: a diagnostic study


In a two day workshop on “Plasma Science & Entrepreneurship” on November 2 and 3 2020 the topic plasma was addressed from various directions. Among the speakers were multiple of the supervisors of PIONEER as well as one ESR.

  • Vasco Guerra : “Vibrational kinetics in CO2 plasmas: checks and balances”
  • Xin Tu : “Plasma-enhanced Catalysis: An Emerging Technology for CO2 Conversation”
  • Gerard van Rooij : “Electrification and circularity – a plasma chemistry perspective”
  • Richard Engeln : “Vibrational kinetics of CO2 in non-thermal plasmas”
  • Chloé Fromentin : “Kinetic mechanisms in CO2 – O2 plasmas: Development of a reaction mechanism”

On December 2 two of the ESRs participated in the Physics PhD workshop 2020 at the University of Trento. The PhD have here the opportunity to present their daily work. Additionally, new strategies in science education and mental health in times of Covid were addressed.
