The EURACT-NMR workshop will be organized by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the European Joint Research Centre Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU).
The workshop will be held at Akademiehotel in Karlsruhe, Germany, from the 27th to the 29th of January 2010. In addition to oral presentations and a poster session, there will be lab tours to ITU + KIT’s Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal (KIT-INE) to visit their controlled areas, equipped with NMR instrumentation, and an excursion to Bruker BioSpin GmbH in Ettlingen, near Karlsruhe.
The workshop is funded by the EU 7th Framwork EURATOM Programme as a coordination and support action “EU-NMR-An - Towards a European Competence Centre for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) on Actinides“. The Workshop is partially sponsored by BRUKER BioSpin GmbH.
Karlsruhe is situated in the sunny southern German section of the Rhine river and lies approximately between Strasbourg, France and Heidelberg, Germany. It is surrounded by interesting tourist areas such as the Black Forest to the south, the wine regions of the Alsace and the Palatinate to the west, the Neckar Valley to the north. Stuttgart, the capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg and home of Porsche automobiles, is around 80 km to the west. Karlsruhe can easily be reached via train or car from Frankfurt am Main, Strasbourg, or Stuttgart international airports (see how to reach us, under Travel). With a population of nearly 300.000, Karlsruhe is a medium-sized city with more than adequate hotel accommodation capacity and an excellent public transportation system.
