Solid state chemistry – mesostructured materials: Juniorprofessor Dr. Mirijam Zobel

Print page

Overview of all TS

Up to now we have organized a total of 9 Travelling Seminars.

In 1999, Prof. A. A. Rempel, Institute of Solid State Chemistry, RAS an Ural Federal University (UrFU), Ekaterinburg, and Prof. A. Magerl started a research collaboration on nanomaterials, which was extended to include teaching (summer schools) and grew into a partnership with the unique ‘Travelling Seminars’ in 2008.

In 2017, Assistant Prof. Maxim I. Vlasov, UrFU, and Jun.-Prof. Mirijam Zobel, University Bayreuth, took over and organised 3 seminars since.

The Travelling Seminars resulted in various bilateral research projects and research stays of both Russian and German participants as well as professors in Germany and Russia, respectively. Both professors direclty involved in the TS via organization or accompanying the travel, ad professors having contributed lectures at their Institutes to the TS have carried out extended stays for research or lecturing - for instance, Prof. Andreas Magerl (University Erlangen), Prof. Arno Pfitzner (University Regensburg), Prof. Andrey Rempel (Ural Federal University Ekaterinburg) or Prof. Wolfgang Sprengel (Graz University of Technology).

Below, the individual Travelling Seminars and collaborations are shortly described.

​2019: 9th Travelling Seminar in Russia (Irkutsk, Lake Baikal, Novosbirsk, Moscow)Hide

"Nanomaterials and Large-Scale Research Centers"

This TS was unique because we stayed remotely for 3 days in a hotel at the shore of Lake Baikal at the very beginning of the seminar. This was very much appreciated by all participants as it created an immediate mixture of Russian and German students in the free time in the evenings. Further we featured a poster session in the Transsibirian Railway in our cabins, which provided very individual feedback an training in poster presentations for the students.

As a result of this TS, Maksim Plekhanov from the Institute of High Temperature Electrochemistry in Ekaterinburg wrote a joint beamtime proposal with the Zobel group for neutron PDF experiments at Institut Laue Langevin. Further, Maksim Plekhanov received a DAAD scholarship to stay 3 months in the Zobel group during 2020.
