The Supramolecular Chemistry course is designed for PhD students working in the field of supramolecular chemistry in The Netherlands. This course was initiated more than 20 years with the objective to train PhD students in the theory, analytical techniques, and practice of supramolecular chemistry. It consists of 3 sessions of 2 days that take place in three different universities. This year venues are: University of Groningen, University of Twente, and Nijmegen University. The number of participants is limited to 100-125.
The registration for this course is free of charge.
