7th "Nano and Photonics" meeting in the Castle of Mauterndorf, Austria

 

From 22.3.-25.3.2017 Wolfgang Knoll (Austrian Institute of Technology), Franz Aussenegg (Universität Graz and Erwin-Schrödinger Institute) and Emil J.W. List-Kratochvil (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Member of IRIS-Adlershof) jointly organize the 7th „Nano and Photonics“ meeting in the Castle of Mauterndorf, Austria.

This year’s program was put together with a topical focus on “Sensing applications based on plasmonic nanostructures “. Invited speakers include N. Halas from Rice University, E. Maillart from HORIBA Jobin-Yvon, Paris/FRA), G. Strasser from TU Wien, and many others.

The purpose of this event is to organize an international scientific meeting for those, who are interested in photonic applications of modern nanotechnology. One goal of this event is also to create an informal European wide discussion platform for state of the art work in basic research done at the various universities as well as industrial based research and development. The location, Castle Mauterndorf, provides an ideal environment to discuss the entire range of topics without any pressure of time, in particular between the morning and afternoon sessions as well as in the evening. This year again it is expected to gather 70 participants from 8 different countries.

“Science meets business” – Advanced Materials


On 8 December 2015 Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, HUMBOLDT-INNOVATION and Berlin Partner will jointly present the 4th knowledge and technology transfer event of the series Wissenschaft trifft Wirtschaft (WtW, “Science meets business“). This year’s event focusses on Advanced Materials.
Main areas of research:

Physics:
  • (elementary) particle physics
  • solid state physics
  • macromolecules/complex systems
  • optics/photonics
Chemistry:
  • chemical biology
  • functionally structured materials and catalysis

 
The new event format aims at bringing together research and application. We invite companies to present their research questions in the field of Advanced Materials as a short pitch to an audience of scientists and other (local) businesses. At the event, researchers will have the chance to learn about current and future challenges companies face working with new materials. At the same time, HU scientists from the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences IRIS Adlershof and the Physics and Chemistry Departments are going to showcase their successful application-oriented research cooperations with third parties. Scientists and companies will have ample opportunity to network and to discuss their research subjects in more detail in the course of the day.

The event will be held in English and participation is free of charge. Space, however, is limited. If you would like to attend, please e-mail Ms Wei (tianni.wei events.humboldt-innovation.de) with the following information: name, surname, company/institution, position and e-mail address.

Kosmos Summer University 2014:
Limits and Scales in Analytical Sciences

 

 

The fundamental analytical questions of the future can be subsumed into three interconnected pairs of guiding themes: Limits & Scales, Sensitivity & Selectivity, and Make & Measure. Through our planned KOSMOS Summer University, we want to initiate a debate about the first of these guiding themes, Limits & Scales, as we believe that this theme addresses a very basic aspect of our comprehension of nature. The KOSMOS Summer University is being organized by the scientists and staff of the School of Analytical Sciences Adlershof (SALSA) of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin on the university’s science campus Adlershof.

ERC-Grantees Conference 2014
"Frontiers in Chemistry – The Basis for Advanced Materials"

 

 

The aim of the conference is to gather some of the leading European experts in the field of chemical materials research, showcase their latest achievements, and discuss about future trends. For this purpose, we have invited around 20 ERC laureates (starting, consolidating, and advanced grants) active in the field of chemistry of materials. Among them, there will be two plenary lectures delivered by Prof. Klaus Müllen and Prof. Markus Antonietti, both leading figures of materials chemists of their generations. Importantly, the meeting aims at providing a platform for young researchers to learn first hand about the ERC granting schemes and it will provide a great opportunity to network and foster future collaborations within the European research landscape.
