On 23 May 2019, the first crystal structure of a molecule synthesized and crystallized at the University of Abomey-Calavi in Cotonou, Benin, was solved during a crystallographic training session at the X-TechLab in Sèmè City, Benin, organized within the framework of the IUCr-UNESCO OpenLab in partnership with Bruker and LAAAMP.

The Programme Committee of this first crystallographic training session at the X-TechLab [note: a training session on X-ray microtomography was held in parallel with the crystallography class] was chaired by Claude Lecomte (CRM2, University of Lorraine, France) and the training staff included Professor Lecomte, Patrice Kenfack (University of Dschang, Cameroon), Florence Porcher (CEA Saclay, France), El-Eulmi Bendeif and Emmanuel Wenger (CRM2, University of Lorraine, France), Pierre Fertey (Synchrotron Soleil, France), Michele Zema (University of Pavia, Italy) and Eddy Martin (Bruker France).
