French-Italian Coordination Chemistry Days

Our PhD students Francesco and Giovanni, together with Prof. Andrea Biffis, participated at the French-Italian Coordination Chemistry Days at Insitut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (ISIS) in Strasbourg (FR). It was an occasion for Italian and French scientists to promote exchange and collaboration in coordination chemistry and beyond.
