The best  SSC 2021 poster authors

The last day of the virtual Solid State Chemistry conference which was held on-line from 14 – 17 June 2021 from FunGlass Trenčín, we learned the names of the best poster authors.

Virtual Poster Session was dedicated to the talented young researchers who competed for YOUNG SCIENTIST POSTER AWARD. 13 posters were presented at special interactive website session during the conference. Their authors came from 8 institutions of seven countries (University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague, Czech republic; University of Pardubice, Czech republic; FunGlass Trenčín, Slovakia; Minnesota State University, Mankato, USA; West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, Poland; Kumamoto University, Japan; Babeş-Bolyai University, Romania; Frumkin Institute of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry RAS, Russia).

The posters were evaluated by the committee composed of Dr. Katalin Balazsi (Centre for Energy Reserach, Budapest, HU), prof. Enrico Bernardo (Univetsity of Padova, ITA), prof. A. R. Boccaccini (Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, GER), prof. Dušan Galusek (FunGlass, Trenčín, SK), prof. Tomáš Wagner (University of Pardubice, CZ). The emphasis of the evaluation was put on the attractiveness of the scientific excellence, the clarity of the text and graphical representation.
