05. - 07.09. 2014 - FEZA-Pre-School: Hierarchically-ordered Materials: From Theory to Applications

Schloss Schney, Lichtenfels

The FEZA Pre-School 2014 will be dedicated to hierarchically porous systems covering all aspect from hierarchy in powders to the reactor scale. Currently, this field stimulates extensive research activity, covering fundamental studies of the hierarchy formation, the development of analytical tools for its qualitative and quantitative characterization and already potential applications in which hierarchical materials promise an improved performance compared to their conventional porous counterparts. The lectures of the Pre-School 2014 will be given by experts of the above mentioned fields and are meant for PhD students, post-docs and younger scientist who would like to gain a deeper understanding of hierarchically structured porous materials. The topic ,hierarchy’ is a key aspect of the research of the Cluster of Excellence (EAM). EAM Research Areas D, E and A3 will contribute to this Pre-School.   

Online-Registration is now closed.
