off 25 February with 250 participants registered and several sessions chaired by Bio4Energy researchers—more than in any of the previous four UREMs given on both accounts.
At UmU Messinger leads research to develop solar fuels, on the one hand, and processes to underpin the generation of energy carriers such as hydrogen by using sunlight and water in photosynthetic processes, on the other. Both types of research are amply represented at this year’s UREM.
The meeting programme says: “The meeting aims to strengthen and display our efforts towards research in the renewable energy field. Several strong research environments and research programmes on renewable energy are located at Umeå University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences”.
Bio4Energy expects to follow up with a report of parts of the meeting.
