During Mar 13-16, 2012 Ivo Leito visited University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (USST) and gave a series of lectures/workshops for te students of USST.
The lectures/workshops were the following:
– A Short Journey into Modern AnalyticalChemistry
– Measurement Science and its importance for the Society
– Superacid derivativesin your pocket?
The lectures triggered interesting discussions. The students wanted to know about the limits of modern analytical chemistry, about the possible uses of superacids, about the consequences of wrong measurement results. The joint residual message of the lectures was that accurate and reliable measurements (and chemical analyses) are one of the foundations of modern science and technology and with their development the importance of accurate measurements is going to increase.
This visit is expected to be the start of a fruitful collaboration between USST and UT. The visit was organized in the framework of and with funding from the Study in Estonia cooperation platform.
