The Euro Bio-inspired Materials 2016 will take place for the third time in Potsdam, Germany from 22 – 25 February, 2016. The scope of the Euro Bio-Inspired 2016 is to provide an interdisciplinary platform for the discussion of novel developments and trends in the field of bio-inspired materials research.

Almost 180 participants from 20 countries worldwide have registered for the conference.

The scientific programme is now available and can be consulted on the Bio-Inspired homepage:

The programme comprises several invited plenary lectures, oral and poster presentations as well as a session related to the priority program 1420 (Biomimetic Materials Research: Functionality by Hierarchical Structuring of Materials) of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
