The two Jacobs students Inga Dammann (BSc Chemistry, 2017) and Wassim W. Ayass (PhD Chemistry, 2017) qualified in a competition among young scientists worldwide to participate in the 67th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting dedicated to Chemistry from 25 – 30 June 2017.
420 scientists from 78 countries participated and met around 30 Nobel laureates, attended their lectures, and had discussions with them. Inga was funded by the Verband der Chemischen Industrie (VCI) and Wassim was supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and co-funded by the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID). Both Inga and Wassim are members of the research group of Prof. Ulrich Kortz at Jacobs University, performing research on synthetic inorganic materials chemistry and catalysis.
