Sole Roig gave a talk at the 4th International Conference of Natural Fibers

Last 1st to 3rd July 2019, the PhD fellow Soledad Roig attended the 4th International Conference of Natural Fibers that took place in Porto (Portugal). There, she presented an interesting oral contribution with the title: “Multilayer bacterial cellulose with confined nanoparticle distribution” which was based on her most recent published work.

Best POLYMAR2018 oral presentation award for Sole Roig!

From the 8th to the 12th of October 2018 Sole Roig, PhD candidate at the N&N group, participated in the 2nd Conference in Polymer Science (POLYMAR) dedicated to biopolymers and taking place in a cruise through the Aegean sea. Her presentation “Microstructuration and functionalization of bacterial cellulose” was awarded with the Best Oral Presentation by an early stage researcher price sponsored by Publishing MDPI, congratulations Sole! 

 

“POLYMAR2018 was a very interesting congress with a new format I have never seen before. The industrial point of view of most of the talks offered me the possibility to learn new approaches that we can apply on our lab in order to make easier the commercialization of the materials we are investigating.” 

 

Sole Roig attended BIENAL2017

From the 25th to the 29th of June of 2017, Sitges hosted the XXVI Biennial Meeting of the Spanish Royal Society of ChemistrySoledad Roig, from the N&N group, attended this big congress and gave a talk entitled: Engineering Bacterial Cellulose. She presented her results on the creation of multi-functional materials combining layers of functionalized bacterial cellulose with diverse nanoparticles.

Sole presented her results at the session on “Polymers for a Sustainable Development”

Good job Sole!
