The EACH Winter School 2017 took place in Sweden, at Uppsala University, Erken Laboratory. It appears to have been a memorable experience for all participants, especially those from southern countries. For example, quite some people had never walked on ice in their life, not to speak about jumping into water from sauna or under ice fishing! We were able to experience the best of Sweden – Swedish food, nature and hospitality, which was spiced up and complemented with exotic dishes and participants’ enthusiasm!

Applications and Theory of Fluorescence Spectroscopy in Analytical Chemistry

Due largely to its selectivity and sensitivity, fluorescence spectroscopy is a powerful tool used by analytical chemists in a variety of fields. This short-course will engage students in the principles and modern applications of fluorescence spectroscopy.

Prof. Nils Magnus Palmblad (Leiden University Medical Center)

Different topics in chemical informatics

The sessions touch upon different areas of chemical informatics: How spectral databases and spectral search algorithms work? Digital approaches to species identification on the basis of analytical data. Integrating data and software using ontologies. Annotating analytical chemistry methods using an onthology.

 

General information:

Every year, Winter School (WS) is held in the second half of January (duration: approximately 1 week). EACH programme Winter School usually takes place in one of the four countries: Estonia, Sweden, Finland or France. It includes (1) short courses on novel and timely topics of analytical chemistry and metrology in chemistry delivered by external scholars, including individual/group work by students, (2) presentations by second year students on the progress of their master theses and (3) presentations of the professors and teachers of UU, UCBL and AAU for first year students on the specialization possibilities offered at the second year universities and potential master’s thesis topics, followed by discussions and interviews and concluding with selection of students for study tracks. All consortium students participate in the WS.
