Prof. Cristina Nevado
Department of Chemistry, University of Zurich, Zurich, SWITZERLAND
The University of Zurich (UZH) is the largest University in Switzerland. UZH is a core member of the URL, hosts 4000 researchers and trains ca.20.000 students every year. The Department of Chemistry hosts several research groups with interests on the synthesis of bioactive organic molecules (Prof. Karl Gademann, Prof. John Robinson, Prof. Nathan Luedtke), organometallic chemistry (Prof. Roger Alberto, Greta Patzke), and computational chemistry (Prof. Prof. Jurg Hütter). UNITECTRA is the technology-transfer unit and helps researchers to translate their basic results into commercial applications through the long-established collaborations with the life science industry located in Switzerland.

Prof. Giovanni Poli
Sorbonne Université , Paris, FRANCE
Sorbonne Université is born from the merger of Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) and Université Paris Sorbonne. It covers all major disciplinary fields and offers new transversal academic and research programs. Sorbonne Université is fully multidisciplinary research-intensive excellence university in the center of Paris with three faculties: Humanities and Social Sciences, Medicine and Sciences & Engineering.
With more than 53400 students (among 10 200 international students), 4400 doctoral students and 6300 researchers, Sorbonne Université is one of the leading French universities.
Giovanni Poli made his studies in Chemistry at the University of Milan (1980). After a doctoral program spent between the University of Milan and the University of Geneva, he served as post doc at the University of Lausanne, then again at the University of Milan. In 1992 he became Associate Professor at the University of Florence, and in 2000 Full Professor at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (now Sorbonne Université), where he is now.
