Ulm-Erlangen Symposium on Functional Organic Materials
On the 10th and 11th of July 2017 we will host the first "Ulm-Erlangen Symposium on Functional Organic Materials". While the primary objective of the symposium is to build bridges between research groups in Ulm and Erlangen, we have also invited four distinguised speakers from other institutions. The meeting will also be a platform for young researchers to present their latest research findings and win one of two poster prizes.
Registration is free of charge and all external guests are welcome, especially PhD students who wish to present a poster. To register, please follow the instructions in the symposium flyer (download here).
