Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

  1. Attendance in 10 one-hour seminar covering research in a wide range of chemical science and engineering. Each seminar is to be followed by a discussion involving the lecturer and the audience (graduate students).
  2. Preparation prior to seminar. Each lecturer provides one or two review articles, which should be read before the seminar.
  3. Writing of abstracts for each seminar. Each seminar should be analyzed from the following perspectives: (a) General importance and implication. (b) What can be useful in own research in terms of methodology and way of general thinking? What immediate problems can be solved? What are the possible directions for collaborative research? (c) What are the potential interactions with otherareas covered int eh course? The latter can only be dealt with after listening to all ten seminars.
  4. Writing a synopsis describing/explaining the benefits from collaboration with other groups based on the information provided during the course. The purpose of this exercise is to synthesize the suggestions/ideas brought up for individual lectures under items 3b and c.
