Zhandos Tauanov at 3rd EWaS International Conference, Lefkada Island, Greece

Jul 10th, 2018

And… #ESTglife again with you. Today we are  telling about the conference, in which our PhD candidate Zhandos Tauanov participated.

3rd EWaS International Conference on “insights on the Water-Energy-Food Nexus”, was held on Lefkada Island, Greece, from 27th to 30th of June 2018.

Zhandos successfully  introduced the paper, named as “Silver nanoparticles impregnated zeolites derived from coal fly ash: Effect of the silver loading on adsorption of mercury (II)” (Authors: Zhandos Tauanov, Dhawal Shah, Grigorios Itskos, Vasileios Inglezakis).

The Conference’s topics deal with hydraulics, hydrology, water resources systems management, urban water management, riverine systems, hydrodynamics and waves, global changes & smart cities, hydrology, raw and waste water treatment, waste management, groundwater and irrigation systems and advanced methods for environmental system analysis.

Our  ESTg member, Almira Yagofarova is  participating in a 2 month traineeship in the framework of Nanoporous and Nanostructured Materials for Medical Applications (NanoMed) project at the Universidad de Alicante, Spain.

Almira has already characterized the adsorption properties and adsorption capacity of various types of cryogels and zeolites (modified and non modified) by  scanning electron microscope (SEM) and measured the surface area of absorbents by Gas adsorption method. Moreover, she has aimed to determine the materials adsorption efficiency by using  X-ray diffraction (XRD).

Then also Almira is going to complete the process of  removal of iodide from water solutions under different conditions and use UV-VIS for iodide measurements.

We wish Almira further success and waiting for her with excellent results!

SuperMegaNews!!!New Project with new opportunities!

Jun 28th, 2018

Prof. Inglezakis got an European Project by Erasmus+ Programme  “International credit mobility Key Action 1: Learning mobility of Individuals”, promoting the international exchange of students and staff between higher education institutions in Erasmus+ Programme and Partner Countries. Erasmus+  opens up the opportunities, allowing for mobility from other parts of the world to “Programme Countries”, and for outgoing mobility for European students to go to “Partner Countries”.

Credit mobility can be defined as a limited period of study or traineeship abroad (in the framework of on-going studies at a home  nstitution) for the purpose of gaining credits. After the mobility phase, students return to their home institution, where the credits are recognised and they complete their studies.

How does it work?

Students and doctoral candidates are able to study abroad for a period of three months (or one academic term or trimester), up to a maximum of 12 months in each study cycle and may benefit from an Erasmus+ grant. Staff can spend a teaching and/or training period abroad from five days (excluding travel) to a maximum of two months and may also benefit from a grant. The grant for staff may provide funding for two additional days of travel (one before and one after the mobility).
