Joint Workshop on Nano-Characterisation
** This event took place already. A picture report and some of the presentations can be found here. **
On Monday 28 October 2019, the 4TU.Research Centre High-Tech Materials (4TU.HTM) and the Materials Innovation Institute (M2i) were organizing a joint workshop on Nano-Characterisation in Utrecht De Witte Vosch, Oudegracht 46).
Full Programme (Pdf file)
To be able to develop novel, high-tech materials for sustainable applications, a thorough understanding of materials on the nanoscale is crucial.
This workshop brought together scientists and industrial partners with interest and expertise on nano-characterisation throughout the different types of materials, techniques and processes for an exchange of ideas and observations.
