The work of CEDNETS is implemented by four workpackages:
WP1 Workshops for experts
WP2 Ph.D./Postgraduate Studies
WP3 Building a capacity of the Center
WP1 – Workshops for experts
3rd Polish-German Workshop on Chemistry of Natural Products, Synthesis, Chirality, Diversity, 1-6 June 2004, Rydzyna
International Symposium MODERN ASPECTS OF SUGAR CHEMISTRY, IOC PAS, 29 September 2003, Warsaw
Sugars in the synthesis of natural products
Workshop on the recent applications of sugars as chirons, planned in June 2005.
Both workshops will enhance the contacts between the Polish scientists and the leading researchers from abroad. All conference materials will be displayed on our web-site.
International exchange of scientists:
invitation of European Ph.D. students to CEDNETS and training Polish Ph.D. students in the leading laboratories abroad
invitation of experts (professors, senior scientists) to teach young researchers
workshops and seminars for Ph.D. students
Our scientific groups involved in CEDNETS would like to expand their programs by application of biosynthetic methodologies and computational methods. We think that on the level of the Ph.D. program it can best realized by direct training of young researchers in the leading laboratories with specific profile of research. Alternatively, we can offer a special training in high-pressure organic synthesis in our well-equipped laboratory.
WP3 – Building capacity of the Center
This workpackage is devoted to establish a better cooperation with the European Union, to promote the Center all over Europe. It is designed also to train people in chemistry in Poland by means of involvement of CEDNETS.
We plan to invite 5 people (young researchers, Ph.D. students for a longer – 2 months – visit to CEDNETS. Also we would like to send our researchers (young but also senior ones) to the leading laboratories in Europe for a longer (2 months) visit.
Our groups involved in CEDNETS would like to expand their programs by application of biosynthetic methodologies and computational methods (e.g. cooperation with Prof. S. Perez, France), which – so far – are not represented widely at the IOC PAS. On the other hand, we can offer a special training in high-pressure organic synthesis in our well-equipped laboratory. The exchange of the researchers will help to integrate the Polish scientists (especially the younger ones) with the EU.
WP4 – Promotion
This workpackage is directed towards promotion of the CEDNETS in Europe. This will be implemented by creation and maintaining the web-site and issuing the promotion materials.
