Anna and Mattia were recently honored with the prestigious Bioeconomy Innovation Award, providing them with the opportunity to explore uncharted territories in their respective research areas—hybrid photosensitizer-nanomaterial encapsulates and spectroscopy. This recognition serves as a significant catalyst for advancing their careers and professional journeys. The Bioeconomy Innovation Award that we marked during the Interdisciplinary PostDoc day at TUMCS is turning this opportunity into a reality.
