If you cannot travel in person, travel virtually: Beate presented at the Northwest Fischeries Science Center in Seattle about application of bioassays for water quality monitoring.
Congratulations to Dr. Fabian Fischer, who was awarded the “Promotionspreis auf dem Gebiet der Wasserchemie” 2020 for his PhD dissertation, which he presented at the virtual “Wasser 21” conference.
We are now offering experimental theses again.
