February 6, 2019 14:00 - 17:00 , Empa, Dübendorf, AKADEMIE
Surfaces and interfaces are the communication paths between environment or operating conditions and devices (MEMs, NEMs, biomedical instruments, optics, energy storage elements, solar cells...). The workshop will address the next generation of smart galvanic coatings from a scientific perspective and allow discussion of opportunities for industrial implementation.
This workshop aims at informing about current initiatives with respect to innovation support in the field of functional coatings/surfaces in general and, in particular electrochemical surface modification/characterization. A central aspect of the workshop is, besides the technical/scientific contributions, to enable direct interaction between representatives from industry with researchers as well as with innovations and ideas for new products. Experts will be available to answer questions and provide practical information about project proposals/feasibility, coating development/support possibilities and potential partners for your innovation ideas.
The workshop is intended for representatives from industry and academia, interested in innovation in surface treatments (in particular “electro”chemical nature) as well as everyone interested to learn more about the expertise available within the NTN Networks (regarding Innosuisse support), SGO-SST, Empa and other Swiss research institutions. These institutions are committed to bundle their efforts in promoting innovation and industrial development of functional surfaces.
The event is sponsored by Empa and free of charge for the participants, but registration is required.
Registration deadline January 30, 2019
