Welcome to the Umeå Renewable Energy Meeting 2015!
For the seventh time the Chemical Biological Centre (KBC; www.kbc.umu.se) at Umeå University, Sweden, organizes the Renewable Energy symposium. This time it will be organised from 25-27 March 2015.
The meeting aims to strengthen and display our efforts towards research in the renewable energy field that is carried out within several strong research environments and research programmes at Umeå University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences: Solar Fuels, Artificial Leaf Project, Bio4Energy (www.bio4energy.se), BioImprove (www.bioimprove.se), and Trees and Crops for the future (www.tc4f.se).
The 2015 edition of UREM will include a broad and unique spectrum of topics including e.g. Bioeconomy, Advanced biomass fuels, Thermal- and Biochemical conversion technologies, Photovoltaics as well as Natural- and Artificial photosynthesis.
We welcome international participants to our interdisciplinary meeting, as well as PIs, post docs and graduate students of KBC. The poster session and selected poster presentations are important parts of the programme. The meeting has been growing over the years and in 2014 we had more than 200 participants.
We hope to meet you in March 2015 in Umeå!
