RENEWABLE ENERGY AND BIOFUELS: A BIOPHYSICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL APPROACH


January 28th - February 1st, 2013

No. of participants: max. 30 PhD students & post docs

Meeting venue
The School will be held in the magnificent Palazzo Franchetti, located in the historical centre of Venice.
Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti is the conference center of the "Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti" (IVSLA) Venetian Institute for Sciences, Humanities and Arts.

Aim of the school
The school focuses on the biological production of renewable fuels. The school offers the audience the possibility to investigate the present different possibilities for biofuels production focusing on theoretical limits and challenges for future research through extended lectures from prominent researchers in the field and free informal discussions. The School will be held in the magnificent Palazzo Franchetti, the seat of the Istituto Veneto located in the historical centre of Venice.

Topics
In 2013, the subject of the school is "Renewable energy and biofuels: a biophysical and biochemical approach" covering the following topics:
1. Introduction to biofuels: limits and perspectives
2. Photosynthesis: optimization and artificial photosynthesis
3. Biodiesel from Algae
4. Bioethanol
5. Biological Hydrogen production

Structure of the school
The school is organized in thorough lectures. The programme is organized in 3-4 60' lectures. Each lecture is followed by a discussion. This structure will give a wide space for free discussion within the day-by-day programme and during the breaks. A poster session will be held for students to present their activity. More information can be found in the school website.
