Educational Need

From the direct harnessing of the Sun’s energy for solar cells or artificial photosynthesis to biological applications in drug delivery or synthetic applications, photochemistry plays a vital role in answers to today’s challenges. Indeed, over 60K articles on various aspects of photochemistry have been published in just the last 6 years. Such productivity in a fast-paced field can limit the wide-spread sharing of knowledge across sub-disciplines. The small setting of a Fusion conference is perfect for cross discipline interaction. Fusion provides the opportunity for deeper discussion, learning, and relationship building in comparison to other conferences in the field. In this setting, we hope attendees will leave the conference with new idea and approaches to explore in regard to their independent research programs.

Location

The Dolce CampoReal Lisboa is nestled between the vineyards and the extraordinary landscape of the Socorro and Archeira Mountains.

Lisbon is only a short 30-minute drive away. The Portuguese capital is constantly recognised as one of the greatest cities in the world, a claim confirmed by the “Lonely Planet Guides", who named Lisbon one of the world’s top 10 cities. Lisbon in one of the world’s oldest cities, predating the likes of London, Rome and Paris by hundreds of years. Hillsides covered in tumbledown houses and a mix of baroque and neoclassical buildings, including cathedrals and palaces, make up Lisbon’s skyline. The city is a combination of old and new, with beautiful modern buildings constructed near renovated historical landmarks and ruins.

Transportation

Dolce CampoReal Lisboa, Torres Vedras is approximately a 30-minute journey from Lisbon Portela Airport.

Taxis

Taxis are available outside the airport, but we would strongly recommend you pre-book your airport transfer with one of the many private transfer companies that are available. The Dolce CampoReal Lisboa is located outside of the city zone and a pre-booked transfer will be a cheaper option than a taxi taken from the airport taxi rank.

Uber also operate in and around Lisbon and there are other Portuguese taxi-hailing apps such as MyTaxi, TaxisLisboa and Coop Taxis, all offering reasonable rates.

Further information regarding pre-booked transfers will be made available closer to the conference dates.
