Mini-symposium: Bridging the gap between membrane modelling and applications
On the occasion of the PhD defense of ir. Wouter Naessens, a mini-symposium is organised at the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering. Four speakers will share their view on the role of modelling for membrane processes, its inherent connection to experimental data and its influence on the field of applications.
Date and time: January 9, 2019 13:30 - 15:30
Location: Auditorium A2, Coupure Links 653, 9000 Gent
