Symposium in Memory of Prof. Franco Scandola

Franco Scandola was Emeritus Professor at the University of Ferrara (Ferrara, Italy)


He pioneered studies in the field of photochemistry and photophysics of coordination compounds, photoinduced energy and electron transfer processes, and molecular and supramolecular systems for Artificial Photosynthesis. He was a scientist and researcher of remarkable intuition and a trusty lecturer for all of his students. The present symposium aims at celebrating his outstanding scientific career and the inspiration his intuition, curiosity, and scientific rigour gave to many generations of scientists in the photochemistry realm.

The symposium will take place on December 14th at the Sala Estense in Piazza del Municipio 14, 44121 Ferrara. Invited lectures will be delivered by top scientists and researchers in the field of photochemistry, whose scientific achievements were profoundly inspired by prof. Franco Scandola research.
