Science – Industry Workshop on 2D Materials

From 21st -23rd of March 2016 the NanoMat network is hosting a Science – Industry Workshop on 2D Materials at the Empa Academy in Dübendorf / Switzerland. The international symposium is jointly organised by NanoMat with its partners from Empa, NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA) and the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM). The program offers up-to-date information on synthesis and properties of 2D materials, regulation, standardization and safety aspects as well as applications and industry perspectives presented by international experts in plenary and workshop sessions. Participant are welcome to submit poster abstracts (Deadline 1st March 2016) to share their own work & discuss it with the community.
