GCI@HOME event

We are pleased to announce the 1st online event by the Italian Young Crystallographers (GCI).

The COVID-19 pandemic has massively reduced the opportunities to participate in scientific conferences and discuss with the community. For this reason, we have organized an online event to give younger scientists the chance to share their results with a wide audience.

Now on-line:
