Webinars/Seminars Series

With an intention to help our students identify the SCIENTIST in them, we, the Department of Chemistry, University of Peradeniya will commence a departmental seminar series named " INSPIRE" inviting renowned academics and researchers to share their knowledge, expertise, and experience with the students of the Department of Chemistry/Faculty of Science.

About the INSPIRE

The first half of this new seminar series will feature webinars/seminars from senior academic staff members and emeritus professors from the Department of Chemistry to recognize the valuable contributions they’ve made to our department, university, and the world of science.

The rest of the seminar series will include webinars/seminars from invited speakers from all over the world from renowned academic and research institutions/industries, to explore their research and expertise with our students and staff. This will be a great opportunity for our students to get exposure and insight into world-class research culture. This will also allow our students to make connections with the academic/research leaders, which will surely benefit them when they apply for higher studies.
