A public Symposium on Sustainable Materials and Light Driven Processes is scheduled for Sept. 28 and 29 in the Memorial Unions Century Theater. The symposium aims to illustrate cutting edge research across the university. New science and technology on developing 21st century sustainable processes for accessing materials such as metals, plastics and ceramics will be presented.
The event will bring together scientists from multiple groups across disciplines. Featured speakers include faculty from different colleges at NDSU, as well as leaders in the field from across the country. This symposium is expected to initiate collaborative research for future growth of sustainable sciences at NDSU. The event will showcase both oral and poster presentations during the two day symposium.
The symposium is free to attend, but registration is required. For more information, or to register for the event, visit www.ndsu.edu/chemistry/light.
