Brainnovation Day 2017

Functional Coatings


The aim of the 3rd Brainnovation day on Functional Coatings is to significantly increase dialogue and collaboration between the industry and AU (i.e. iNANO and the Departments of Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering). This year we will address this specific theme and, in particular, the many challenges associated with choice of technology, material integration, analysis methods, exploitation of new knowledge, etc.

The primary focus of the meeting is on challenges and problem-solving of industrial problems. During the day representatives from DanMAX, The Danish Technological Institute and the companies Bollerup-Jensen, Elos Medtech, and Coloplast will address the innovations taking place at their sites and describe some of the challenges they face. Likewise, two iNANO/Chemistry researchers will give an overview of their work in the field of functional coatings.

After poster session, lunch, and an optional guided tour of iNANO or Chemistry, the afternoon will be fully dedicated to networking and brainstorming in focus groups on problems of relevance to the industry.


Discussion themes: The problems or themes for discussion are open for input from the participants.

Deadline for submission of discussion themes: December 4, by email to the organizer.


Invitation for Poster presentations: Postdocs and PhD students are strongly encouraged to participate with a poster presentation (of which 10 also will be selected for a short flash presentation in plenum).

EXTENDED: Deadline for abstract submission: December 4, by email to the organizer.
