The ProMiSe Research Unit is supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) with the aim to investigate and develop new reactors and heat exchangers that take advantage of the unique opportunities afforded by in-situ sensors. In particular, by obtaining temporally- and spatially-resolved information about reactions conditions, new levels of control and precise operation is possible. This is exactly what has been developed over the past years in the four component projects within ProMiSe, spread across the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the University of Freiburg.

This conference serves two important purposes. The first is the bring together leading researchers and industry practitioners in the field of flow chemistry and sensors for intensive discussion in a small, cohesive setting at the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK), University of Freiburg. To this end we are thrilled to announce an exciting and diverse line-up of invited speakers, who you can read more about on the speakers page. The second purpose of this conference is to disseminate some of the important research outcomes from our research unit, in particular giving young scientists and engineers the opportunity to present their work to world-leading researchers in the field. This greatly helps us in one of the aims of our research unit, which is to support and build the careers of young researchers.

The conference will operate in a hybrid mode. This is partly as a result of any Corona hygiene measures which may be in place at the time of the conference (for example, we expect that the maximum occupancy of the main rooms will be limited). However, we see also a tremendous positive outcome of the hybrid mode, and that is that we will make remote participation in the conference free. In this way, all researchers and interested members of the public from around the world can participate in our live sessions, listening to speakers, positing questions, and interacting with the other remote and in-person attendees at the poster session. Of course hosting the conference is not without cost, and we are grateful for the financial support of the DFG that we are able to offer this public participation completely free.
