Applied Biobased Materials Conference (ABC) 2017

datum: 18-04-2017

On the 12th of May the Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM) will host its second international conference on Applied Biobased Materials. AMIBM, located on Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, combines the forces of Maastricht University, RWTH Aachen University and Fraunhofer IME.

A lot has happened in our field in the past year. For AMIBM most certainly the opening of our brand new laboratories in Center Court and Building 1 on the Brightlands Chemelot Campus was of great importance. This inspiring environment will also serve as our conference location for 2017’s ABC.

In 6 consecutive sessions a series of international key-note speakers will guide you along the value-chain, giving you the opportunity to discuss latest research developments and future perspectives of applying biobased materials. During the breaks you will be able to browse poster presentations by our young researchers. Brightlands Chemelot Campus offers an inspiring and hospitable environment for the ABC.

The conference is on invitation. However, if you are interested in our conference and have not received an invitation please contact us at
