Dear Colleagues, we are pleased to cordially invite you to 10th International Meeting «Photosynthesis and Hydrogen Energy Research for Sustainability – 2019» in honor of Kimiyuki Satoh (Japan), Tingyun Kuang (China), Cesare Marchetti (Italy) and Anthony Larkum (Australia).

Your participation is important for the success of the Meeting, and will be very much appreciated. This Meeting will be a great occasion for discussions of previous, present, and future research on photosynthesis and hydrogen energy, from molecular to global, and will provide an exciting scientific program, which will cover the breadth and depth of photosynthesis and hydrogen energy, and to meet researchers of photosynthesis and hydrogen energy from around the world. This meeting will provide a forum for students, postdoctoral fellows and scientists from different countries to deepen their knowledge and understanding, widen professional contact, to create new opportunities and establish new collaborations.

From late May to early July nights are bright in Saint Petersburg, but the real White Nights normally last from June 11 to July 2. The nature of the White Nights (Beliye Nochi) can be explained by the geographical location of Saint Petersburg. It is the world’s most northern city with a population over 5 million.

The text of your abstract. On the other hand the further development of various forms of activities entails the process of implementation and upgrading of significant financial and administrative conditions. A varied and rich experience in the scope and location of staff training is an interesting experiment to test new proposals. Ideological considerations of a higher order, as well as constant quantitative growth and scope of our activity allows us to estimate the value of personnel training system, and meets urgent needs. Ideological considerations of a higher order, as well as the strengthening and development of the framework requires us to analyze participatory systems.[1] A varied and rich experience of constant information and propaganda support of our business requires us to analyze trends progressive development.
