Overview of the SERP-Chem Master Course

The Master SERP-Chem aims at training young students in the most performing experimental and theoretical tools used and developed in chemistry and physical-chemistry and Material Science. It is an answer for an increasing need of skilled people to participate in the efforts developed scientifically or industrially in areas of great relevance towards economic sustainability and environmental safety, conservation and protection such as: development of renewable energies and "no-energy" chemistry based on photon-induced reactions, use of radiation induced processes to optimize applications, surface treatment and modification, development of compounds for catalysis aimed at enhancing the selectivity and the efficiency of chemical and industrial processes. This international study programme stems from existing scientific links between participating institutions.

Students enrolled in the two-year programme will attend lectures in at least two different countries of their choice:
