Soft Matter & Self-Assembly
On Thursday 19 January 2023, 4TU.HTM organized a Joint Workshop on Soft Matter & Self-Assembly. We invited scientists with interest and expertise in soft matter including its assembly, to exchange knowledge, and explore ways of collaboration. We are looking back at an inspiring, interactive and fruitful event with presentations and pictures on the website of the Joint Workshop on Soft Matter & Self-Assembly. Thanks to the speakers for their excellent talks, and to the chairs for the introduction and for moderating the plenary discussions. For anyone who has questions on this topic and wants to reach out to the speakers for more information or collaboration, please contact Reina Boerrigter (Coordinator 4TU.HTM).
