16 – 17 dicembre 2021: “Green Christmas Session 2021”

The international conference Green Christmas Session 2021 “Photosynthetic microorganisms for sustainable development” will be focused on the potential of photosynthetic microorganisms to build up and promote the sustainable development of our society. The conference will be held on December 16-17, 2021, and will highlight the advantages of using photosynthetic processes and structures in the production of green energy and compounds with high-added value, in space research and environmental protection.

The first edition of Green Christmas Session is keen to deepen the collaboration between the photosynthetic research communities of Italy and the Russian Federation. However, it will bring together scholars, early stage researchers and students from all around the world, providing a valuable platform to expand professional contacts, create new opportunities and establish new collaborations. The format of the conference envisages the participation of preselected Invited Speaker and free attendance for the audience, and foresees time for Q&A after the individual presentations.
