docMOF prizes

At the start of the event, we revealed that, due to generous support from the TUM Graduate School and the Chair of Inorganic and Metal-Organic Chemistry (R. A. Fischer) we were able to offer 5 prizes to the best presentations at docMOF: two for oral presentations and three for posters.

Each prize consists in the sum of €1500, which is to be used for the recipients’ travel costs for the MOF 2018 conference in Auckland, New Zeeland. This is to further the spirit of our symposium, and allow the best work presented at docMOF to be shown in the de facto conference aimed at metal organic framework research.

We would like to congratulate the winners of the prizes, which were awarded by Professor Martin Schröder at the ending ceremony.
