MOFschool2021 announcement

Dear Colleagues,

With great pleasure we announce that the applications are now open for the 2nd International School on Porous Materials (MOFschool2021) which will take place in June 21th-25th 2021.

As much as the Covid-19 pandemic will allow travelling, MOFschool2021 will be held as a blended event, at Villa del Grumello, on the beautiful shores of Lake Como, Italy. In this case, a restricted number of participants will be welcomed in presence, while the rest in remote. In case the pandemic will make this solution unfeasible, MOFschool2021 will be held as a completely in-remote event.

The School is addressed to qualified undergraduate, graduate and PhD students as well as young post-doctoral fellows with a maximum age of 35. Applicants will be selected by the School Directors based on their CVs.

The School gathers some of the worldwide experts in the field of metal-organic and covalent-organic frameworks and will cover the current research developments. Starting from advanced synthetic methods, the School will propose representative examples of up-to-date characterization techniques and cutting-edge applications, up to implementation into devices.

Grants are available to (fully or partially) cover the participation costs. Information on the Program, Venue, Registration and availability of Grants can be found at

Short-talk and poster sessions are available for the Scholars to present their research.

Looking forward to welcoming you to Villa del Grumello,

the School Directors
Valentina Colombo (University of Milan, Milan, Italy),
Simona Galli (University of Insubria, Como, Italy),
Jorge A.R. Navarro (University of Granada, Granada, Spain)
