Bio-inspired, Nano- and Microstructured Surfaces: New Functionality by Material and Structure

Aims of the seminar

The 644. WE-Heraeus-Seminar “Bio-inspired, Nano- and Microstructured Surfaces: New Functionality by Material and Structure” takes place in Bad Honnef, Germany, on May 28-31, 2017. The Seminar will present a comprehensive overview about the current status of bio-inspired surfaces who’s functionality is caused by their nano- and microstructure or material.

The seminar will take place at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef , in the city of Bad Honnef, about 15 km south of Bonn. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation  is the generous sponsor of this seminar.
