From the food- and manufacturing industry to tackling climate crisis and energy resources, chemistry is essential in almost every part of our daily lives. Still, it is often considered a closed world only available to scientists. Dr. Gábor Lente, the head of the Institute of Chemistry at the University of Pécs, and the speaker of the Alumni Hungary Webinar series in September believes that chemistry should be brought closer to the non-professional audience too. We interviewed him about his experience as a chemist and about his current research.
The debate on working time is one of the most relevant topics of our age.

Read our interview with him about this exciting project.
