About Leo Gros

Affiliation: Hochschule Fresenius Idstein, Germany

Apart from teaching, I have been active and interested in Bologna Reform policy and served as a consultant in this field.
Moreover, I have two main fields of interest:

  • horizontal, i.e. transnational mobility (placement of students in companies, research institutes and University research goups abroad
  • vertical, i.e. trans-level mobility from one level (mainly vocational and dual industry education) to the next (technician training, university)

Teaching interests
mainly Analytical Chemistry including basics (understanding structure-property-relationships, chemistry in aqueous solutions, wet chemistry operations, spectroscopy with a focus on atom spectroscopy) and Polymer Science
