Outreach Symposium
Institute for Complex Molecular Systems
Eindhoven University of Technology

The two-day ICMS Outreach Symposium is the occasion to learn more about new developments in molecular systems presented by invited speakers and TU/e speakers. The first day will focus on bio-inspired engineering with a strong emphasis on biological systems, biomaterials, and polymers, where theory, chemistry, physics and applications are discussed. The second day is organized together with the Dutch initiative and Gravitation Program “Functional Molecular Systems”. Here an expert view on future developments will be presented by world-leaders in the field of adaptive and responsive molecular materials and systems.
