Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung
The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a series of lectures under the general motto "Science with Impact".
Within this series and in cooperation with the FU Berlin (Departments of Biology, Chemistry and Pharmacy as well as Geosciences), BAM is organising a special lecture sequence:
Microbes and Environmental Chemistry: Invisible Actors in Planetary Change
Join us for a virtual trip around the world: on six Thursdays from 14 October to 18 November, always from 4 to 6pm.
Six renowned international scientists will share their ground-breaking observations of processes on this planet.
The spotlight is on interactions of living organisms and landscapes /materials as mediators of global change in all regions of the Earth.
