FUNCTIONAL MOLECULAR MATERIALS
VIRTUAL SYMPOSIUM & WORKSHOP
28 - 29 MARCH 2022

To celebrate the 30th anniversary Walailak University, FuNTech would like to invite you to join the virtual symposium and workshop "Functional Molecular Materials". This symposium is one of many academic event in the the 1st virtual Walailak Research Convention (WRC 2022) which has been arranged by Walailak University.

Aim for this symposium is to connect our current research collaborators with Thai and international researchers in the functional molecular materials together.

To secure your spot please register at link below. We will send you the zoom link via e-mail by 26th March 2022.
