The Workweek

On this website you will find the latest information about the Feringa-Haryutyunian-Otten-Barta research groups' joined Workweek 2014, planned for the 2nd/5th of June 2014


The Workweek is a 3/4-day long, annual excursion of the Stratingh Institute of Chemistry of the University of Groningen (RUG - Rijksuniversiteit Groningen). This excursion is meant to enhance communication and exchange of knowledge between the groups of the Stratingh institute and between the Institute and other Universities and industrial partners around Europe.

The event will start on Monday the 2nd and will end on Thursday the 5th of June. For the year 2014, we plan to visit the Université de Strasbourg in Strasbourg, Alsace, France.  Strasbourg is the capital and principal city of the Alsace region in Eastern France and is the official seat of the European Parliament. Located close to the border with Germany, it is the capital of the Bas-Rhin département. The city and the region of Alsace are historically German-speaking, explaining the city's Germanic name. Strasbourg is fused into the Franco-German culture and although violently disputed throughout history, has been a bridge of unity between France and Germany for centuries, especially through the University of Strasbourg, currently the second largest in France, and the coexistence of Catholic and Protestant culture. Economically, Strasbourg is an important centre of manufacturing and engineering, as well as of road, rail, and river communications. The port of Strasbourg is the second largest on the Rhine after Duisburg, Germany. In terms of city rankings, Strasbourg has been ranked third in France and 18th globally for innovation.
