nova-Institut: Two major events to be held as online conference only due to the corona virus
nova-Institut GmbH announced that because of general event bans in Germany due to the corona virus, it will not be able to hold its two major conferences next week, i.e.:
- 1st European Summit on CO2-based Aviation Fuels, 23 March 2020, Cologne, Germany (in cooperation with IASA)
- 8th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers, 24 – 25 March 2020, Cologne, Germany
Instead, nova-Institut is offering a big online conference from 23 – 25 March 2020 with 50 leading experts and extensive interaction possibilities. According to the organiser, unlike many others, it will not cancel the conference, but offer it as an online conference via ZOOM for up to 500 participants. nova-Institut said it will do everything in its power to generate the maximum benefit for all participants – within the bounds of possibility.
The organiser announced it will try to get all speakers – more than 50 (!) – online on board as planned. Due to different time zones and other problems, there might be some shifts in the programme. For example, nova-Institut will now integrate the parallel session and the evening lectures in the main programme. The presentations for the innovation award are also expected to take place as planned. The winners will then be chosen by the online participants. As always, the winners will be announced worldwide the following day, said the organiser.
As is customary at nova-Institut conferences, all presentations can be commented on and questions can be asked online. After each session, these questions will be discussed in a panel discussion with the session speakers. If presentations are cancelled, the organiser will extend the panel discussion accordingly.
nova-Institut announced that all 140 participants who have already registered will automatically receive a link for online participation. All those who would now like to register for the all three days of the online conference can do so at www.co2-chemistry.eu/registration. After payment, they will receive the corresponding link for participation.
