Event description

Description

Workshop Aims & Outputs:

At this workshop we aim to explore how the interplay between, physics, chemistry, biology and material science can generate highly-defined innovative bio-based glycomaterials in the following areas:

  • Materials that imitate biology (bio-inspired materials: hierarchical structures, self-assembling, structurally self-correcting, active materials with engineered spatio-temporal responses, energy-storing/transducing materials)
  • Materials to monitor biology (materials that modulate biological functions or interrogate biological systems – stem cells, bacteria)
  • Use biology to make material (harnessing biology to make material)
  • Materials to repair biology (biomedical materials for the repair of tissues and organs)
  • Enabling technologies (Synchrotron and Neutron facilities, Electron Microscopy, solid state NMR, Coarse-Grain Simulation,….)

The workshop will consist of a short opening presentation to 'set the scene', flash presentations and group discussions. A positioning paper will be produced following the workshop based on the outputs from the workshop discussions.

If you would like to give a short flash presentation please indicate when prompted during the registration process. Flash presentations should be short (4 minutes max) and should include 1-2 slides to introduce yourself and your organisation plus 1-2 slides on the metrology challenges you currently face and also anticipate in the future and potential solutions (if known). Responses during the registration process will guide the session topic organisation.

Accommodation will be provided for 24th January 2019 please indicate when prompted during the registration process as required.

Who should attend:

This workshop is open to key players from academia and industry interested in any aspect of the 6 workshop topics.

(Note - spaces are limited to 40 and in the event of oversubscription participants will be selected to ensure a good representation from across the European glycoscience community. Therefore we encourage you to register as soon as possible for this workshop).

CarboMet – Metrology of Carbohydrates for Enabling European BioIndustries – is a Coordination & Support Action funded by Horizon 2020 FET-OPEN which aims to establish cross-disciplinary consortia for research and innovation actions in the glycosciences within Horizon 2020 and beyond.
