This week we are back in Jaffna where researchers and academics from different countries are gathered at the University of Jaffna for an International Conference on Advanced Materials for Clean Energy and Health Applications (AMCEHA). Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL) and University of Jaffna (UoJ) jointly organize this conference, and in the coming days, scholars will present articles for publication.
The Ambassador opened the conference today, acknowledging the importance of creating these forums where participants can exchange research and partnerships can be formed. One of the main goals will also be to inspire young students to choose studies in technical fields. In addition, the conference includes a Norwegian-Sri Lankan workshop on clean energy technologies that will be held at the Kilinochchi Campus on Friday. In total, around 500 participants will attend this conference.
