The first annual users meeting of PANACEA was held as a two-day European forum for high-level discussions between academic and industrial users, and consortium partners on the latest developments in solid-state NMR spectroscopy and their applications in modern chemistry and materials research.

Academic and industrial users had the opportunity to participate to six different mini-symposia, each on a different theme.

Each of these mini-symposia, animated by a leading scientist, comprised presentations from an academic overview of the theme, a presentation by a user of the PANACEA network, and one by an industrial.

The meeting was a success, with over 100 participants onsite and more than 50 participants online.


The first day focused on the following topics:

  • Solid-state NMR for pharmaceutical research
  • Solid-state NMR for glasses, inorganic and lightning materials
  • Solid-state NMR for polymers, biopolymers and biomaterials

At the end of the first day, a cellist (Annabelle Luis) gave a concert of Jean Sebastien Bach and Giuseppe Maria Dall’Abaco.

The second day focused on the following topics:

  • Solid-state NMR for energy materials
  • Solid-state NMR for catalysis
  • Solid-state NMR instrumentation, software and remote access

Feedback from users, academics and industrials was very positive, and it emerged clearly that chemists need this kind of events (and are will be looking for other events of the same type!).
