CAMaR in Argentina

24/10 - 28/10

In October 2017 Tito Scaiano and Anabel Lanterna hosted a workshop for graduate students at the Universidad Nacional de Cordoba; the first such event sponsored by CAMaR attacted 36 students from across Argentina. The course “Applied Photochemistry: Principles and Advanced Applications in Nanotechnology” included invited lectures by Drs. Raquel Galian (Valencia, Spain) and M. Jazmin Silvero (Cordoba, Argentina). Taking advantage of the presence of many students representing many geographical areas from Argentina, Tito and Anabel organized an information lunch attended by 16 students where opportunities for study and internships at CAMaR were discussed, including the popular ELAP program that provides scholarships for doctoral students from the Americas. As a past winner of an ELAP Scholarship, Jazmin described her experience during her ELAP Scholarship in Ottawa. The meeting was an outreach activity to promote CAMaR and give it international visibility.

CAMaR in Colombia

22/08/17

The 1st Colombian Symposium of Photochemistry and Photocatalysis was held in Bogota from August 22 to 24 and Tito Scaiano and Anabel Lanterna were invited lecturers. Taking advantage of the presence of many students, Tito and Anabel organized an information lunch attended by 14 students where opportunities for study and internships at CAMaR were discussed, including the popular ELAP program that provides scholarships for doctoral students from the Americas. The meeting may serve as a model for the type of outreach interactions that may give CAMaR international visibility.

CAMaR in Brazil

27/09 - 28/09

The 5th Brazilian Simpósio em Nanociência e Materiais Avançados, V NanoMat was held in Santo Andre, Sao Paulo on September 27 and 28 and Tito Scaiano and Jazmin Silvero were invited lecturers. Taking advantage of the presence of many students, Tito and Jazmin organized an information lunch attended by 13 students where opportunities for study and internships at CAMaR were discussed, including the popular ELAP program that provides scholarships for doctoral students from the Americas. As a past winner of an ELAP Scholarship, Jazmin described her experience during her ELAP Scholarship in Ottawa. The meeting was an outreach activity to promote CAMaR and give it international visibility.

Inaugural CAMaR lecture

10/10/2018

First lecture organized by CAMaR was held on October 10th at 11:30 in DRO 214.

"Designing molecular and nanoscale materials for bottom-up control of magnetism"

Prof. Jeffrey Rinehart, University of California, San Diego.

CAMaR in Kenya

28/02-03/03

In February 2018 USIU-Africa hosted the first trilateral meeting for an ambitious project aimed at developing smart photoactive materials for environmental applications, a collaboration between Kenya, South Africa and Canada and supported by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC). Tito and Anabel promoted the goals of CAMaR and presented a workshop on photoactive materials aimed at solar water purification, part of a 5-year project to deliver solutions to improve water quality using sunlight.

Chemistry Department Workshop

23/03/2018

An Advanced Materials Workshop was scheduled in March 2018 in order to strengthen the materials sub-division within the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences and promote the research currently being developed in the department. This event was initiated to encourage students from materials related research groups to present their research and engage in discussions with their peers and faculty, and potentially lead to new collaborations within the University. Not only did this provide an excellent opportunity for the participants to learn more about each other’s research and expertise, but it was also a great platform for student training and engagement.

CAMaR training & workshop

17-20/ 06 / 2019

CAMaR had dedicated a week to the Health Sciences with great success! The event hosted around 15 speakers, who, during the week, talked about bio- and nano-materials for clinical translation. A section dedicated to experimental work helped the students see first hand modern techniques of cell culture. The week was closed by a panel discussion with 8 professionals from different backgrounds who shared their experiences in innovation and entrepreneurship.
