[Expired] SMILE 2016: Sustainable Materials Inspired by the Living world for Energy

Bio-inspired Materials Conference. IFPEN/RUEIL – 6-8 April 2016

IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN) is pleased to announce SMILE 2016, set to take place at IFPEN, Rueil-Malmaison, from 6 to 8 April 2016, as part of its Rencontres Scientifiques events. The Conference is endorsed by the French Academy of Science.

Topics will include all bio-inspired materials (biomimetic functional materials, biocatalysts, green materials, synthetic materials) with improved (bulk or surface) properties and use. Non restrictive examples are biopolymer hybrids, biotemplates and bioreactors used for a number of applications, including heterogeneous catalysis, dual catalysis, photocatalysis, electrochemistry, energy storage, etc.

Keynote Speakers:
  • Jacques Livage, Collège de France, UPMC, France, Bio-inspired living materials
  • Marc-Olivier Coppens, Univ. College of London, NICE Research, UK, Nature Inspired Chemical Engineering – Pathways to Innovation and Sustainability
  • Kalina Raskin, CEEBIOS, France, Bio-inspiration, a tool for responsible innovation ? French and European context.
Important dates
