The aim of this cycle of lectures given in English is to provide an actual and complex overview about possibilities and limitations, advantages and disadvantages, and present and future outlook of modern trends in electroanalysis. Some of the lectures will be given by invited experts from collaborative universities and academic institutes. The lecture is taught in English for Erasmus students.

!!! At this moment, the lecture takes place only in the form of distance learning, namely live interactive online broadcasts taking place at the time of the scheduled teaching. Students will receive more detailed instructions well in advance of the start of the teaching itself. !!!
