Welcome to the Umeå Renewable Energy Meeting- UREM 2016!
Understanding and applying photosynthesis for a safe future


23-25 February 2016, KBC, Umeå University


Christiane Funk, Department of Chemistry, Umeå University
Sylvia Larsson, Department of Forest Biomaterials and Technology, SLU
Johannes Hanson, Umeå Plant Science Centre UPSC
Johannes Messinger, Department of Chemistry, Umeå University
The Umeå Renewable Energy meeting 2016 is dedicated to presentations and discussions about how fuels and valuable products can be made with the help of sunlight. Examples are the storage of light energy in molecular fuels employing artificial photosynthesis, the production of biofuels and biomass by algae and trees, the cleaning of waste water and flue gasses using photosynthetic organisms, and the production of fish food by algae.
UREM 2016 is an annual event in Umeå since 2009. It takes place at the Chemical Biology Center (KBC) of Umeå University on February 24 and 25. We will have 3 keynote lectures, 10 invited speakers, 14 presentations selected from abstracts and a poster session. The meeting is highly interdisciplinary, with speakers and attendees having backgrounds in physics, chemistry, biology and physiology. The aim is to strengthen the renewable energy related research at Umeå University and SLU that is carried out in the Artificial Leaf, Solar Fuels, Transformer, MicroBioRefine and Bio4Energy research environments. ‘Meet the speaker lunches’ will be organized for students and postdocs, and two public lectures will be held on February 23.

Meet the Speaker lunches
During registration, students and postdocs shall indicate which 3 speakers they would be interested talking to. In addition, they need to submit one page with picture that describes their research. This description will be given to the expert they will meet. There is no guarantee that they can have lunch with the speakers they select. Poster presenters will be given preference in the selection process.
