Modern Analytical Tools for Pulp and Paper, 11.-15.12., 2017

Organizer: ÅA

This course will present recent analytical techniques for pulp and paper. It is a combined course for PhD students and researchers from industry and research institutes. For students, who want to earn 8 credits (ECTS) for the course, there will be lectures and workshops starting on Monday the 11th of December and ending at noon on Friday the 15th. There will also be a compulsory preassignment (home work) to complete before the course starts. We strongly recommend that students should have at least a basic knowledge of wood/biomass chemistry and analytical methods before registering. For industry representatives, that want to learn about the top-of-the-art analytical tools but do not need credits, the course begins at Tuesday the 12th and ends at noon on Thursday the 14th.
