A group of distinguished international scholars, led by Ca' Foscari sinologist Daniele Brombal, came together for an innovative study retreat in the Cansiglio woods, with the goal of examining the social and environmental repercussions of the BRI from different perspectives.
The prestigious award was conferred in recognition of Professor Aricò’s achievements in employing dialkyl carbonates in biorefinery and bio-based platform chemicals development via chlorine-free chemistry.
The centre is named after Marco Polo - the first western man to describe the traditions and customs of ancient China. The new international centre of research at Ca' Foscari was inaugurated on Monday, November 18 at Ca' Vendramin.
Ca' Foscari is giving away free water bottles to all the members of its community. Newly enrolled students will get theirs first, starting from November 25.
