Ulm-Erlangen Mini-Symposium Functional Organic Materials 2017

First Ulm-Erlangen Mini-Symposium on Functional Organic Materials

took place from july 10th – 11th, 2017 at the University of Ulm

The Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) hosts probably the largest and most productive pioneering community in Europe or even worldwide at the forefront of carbon allotrope research. Erlangen is the only place, where all fields of carbon research – the chemistry, the physics, and the materials engineering of fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, graphene and of new synthetic carbon allotropes – are represented. The SFB 953 ‘Synthetic Carbon Allotropes’ therefore constitutes the ideal forum to advance the unifying knowledge on carbon science approaching the desired goal of creating new materials for high-performance applications.

With the focal topics “energy conversion and storage”, as well as “quantum bioscience and technology”, the University of Ulm hosts a critical mass of research groups working on related (in)organic functional materials.

To celebrate and strengthen existing collaborations between Erlangen and Ulm, we will host the first “Ulm-Erlangen Symposium on Functional Organic Materials”. While the primary objective of the symposium is to build bridges between research groups in Ulm and Erlangen, we have invited four renowned speakers from other institutions. The meeting will also be a platform for young researchers to present their latest research findings and win one of two poster prizes.
