Training in vibrational spectroscopy and chemometrics

For the 10th consecutive year, the CRA-W organises a complete training on vibrational spectroscopy and chemometrics. In this 10th anniversary training you will have a complete overview of the theory of the spectroscopic and chemometric methods most commonly used. This will be completed with dynamical practical sessions in multidisciplinary laboratories, which will give you some tips and tricks useful when dealing with spectroscopy and chemometrics.



We look forward to see you in Copenhagen from June 11th  to 15th June 2017

16th edition of NIRS course in Cordoba (Spain)

The 16th edition of the course entitled “Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS): Applications in Quality Control and Traceability of Agri-Food Products and Processes", was held at the University of Cordoba (Spain), February 8th-11th. The course, was designed for pre and post graduate students, scientists and professionals with different backgrounds (analytical chemistry, soils science, aninal nutrition, biology, environmental sciences forestry, agriculture and chemical engineering, etc). This edition there were 18 attendees from Spain, Colombia, Brazil, Portugal and UK (see photo group). Unlike other NIRS courses, it is taught entirely in Spanish, to give researchers and professionals from Latin America the opportunity to perform the training in their mother tongue. Don´t miss the opportunity to be one of our students! The next one will be held at February 2017.
