ERC-Grantees Conference 2014 "Frontiers in Chemistry – The Basis for Advanced Materials"



The aim of the conference is to gather some of the leading European experts in the field of chemical materials research, showcast their latest achievements, and discuss about future trends. For this purpose, we have invited around 20 ERC laureates (starting, consolidating, and advanced grants) active in the field of chemistry of materials. Among them, there will be two plenary lectures delivered by Prof. Klaus Müllen and Prof. Markus Antonietti, both leading figures of materials chemists of their generations. Importantly, the meeting aims at providing a platform for young researchers to learn first hand about the ERC granting schemes and it will provide a great opportunity to network and foster future collaborations within the European research landscape.

Kosmos Summer University 2014: Limits and Scales in Analytical Sciences


The fundamental analytical questions of the future can be subsumed into three interconnected pairs of guiding themes: Limits & Scales, Sensitivity & Selectivity, and Make & Measure. Through our planned KOSMOS Summer University, we want to initiate a debate about the first of these guiding themes, Limits & Scales, as we believe that this theme addresses a very basic aspect of our comprehension of nature. The KOSMOS Summer University is being organized by the scientists and staff of the School of Analytical Sciences Adlershof (SALSA) of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin on the university’s science campus Adlershof.
