DFG–NSF Research Conference 2011
Bioinspired Design and Engineering of Novel Functional Materials / March 22 - 25, 2011, New York City
"The DFG-NSF Research Conferences are designed to strengthen the research ties between the United States and Germany and are intended to be the starting point for joint research activities between German
and US researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories. The emphasis of the 2011 conference is on the formation of functional synthetic materials using biological, biomimetic, and bioinspired templates, approaches, or pathways. The longer-range goal is to create robust routes for the synthesis of materials with novel combinations of properties or possessing functionalities that are unachievable by conventional means. See the Conference Objectives link below for a more detailed description of the conference motivation and procedures..."
