This proposal plans a series of 5 events on Membrane Technology. Membranes have established applications in the food, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industry, water desalination, medical processes like hemodialysis and has gain an increasing relevance in the field of renewable energy.1. Conference ¿New Materials for Membranes¿ (to be organised by GKSS research centre in 2007). The idea is to integrate new advanced materials in the membrane technology, bringing new breakthroughs in the field. Three summer schools are planned with the character of training, enabling young scientists to benefit from the experience of leading researchers: 2. Summer School ¿Smart Materials¿ (to be organized by IMC/ICT Prague in 2006)will give an insight on fundamental aspects o f membrane preparation using self-assembly, nanocomposites and other new materials for separation techniques and energy. 3. Summer School ¿Membranes for reactive processes¿ (to be organized by the University of Genoa 2007) will include membrane preparatio n, characterization and application in fuel cells and catalytic membrane reactors. 4. Summer School ¿Solvent resistant membranes¿ (to be organized by the Catholic University of Leuven in 2008) will focus on applications in the chemical and pharmaceutical i ndustry. 5. Workshop ¿Advances in Membrane Technology¿ (to be organized by GKSS in 2008)will focus on different aspects of membrane technology, presented mainly by highly qualified women scientists in the membrane field, stimulating the participation of yo ung female students. The workshop will have a practical part with technical machines for membrane preparation and characterization, module manufacture, etc and will offer lectures on how to develop skills in communication, meeting moderation, project prepa ration.The coordination will be in charge of GKSS and will have a narrow interaction with the Network of Excellence NanoMemPro and the European Membrane Society for publicity and selection.
