Training School 1

First Training School on Fundamental Aspects in Polymer Synthesis, Adhesion and Modelling

The First Training School TS1 of the BioSmartTrainee ITN “Training in Bio-Inspired Design of Smart Adhesive Materials” organized by Prof. Arancha del Campo at the Leibniz Institute for New Materials, and Prof. Vlasis Mavrantzas at the University of Patras will take place at the University of Patras, Patras (Greece) from September 14th to 16th 2016. This school will focus on the challenges and fundamentals in adhesion science and technology as well as novel concepts in adhesive chemistries and adhesion testing.

Date: 14 – 16 September 2016

Location: University of Patras, UPATRAS, Greece

Organizers: Prof. Arancha del Campo (INM), Prof. Vlasis Mavrantzas (UPATRAS)
