Global Young Investigators Forum


Preliminary Program – Global Young Investigators Forum

The first Global Young Investigators Forum is meant to facilitate scientific discussions among young researchers and the exchange of ideas essential to identify emerging global challenges at the interface of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, material research and engineering. Young researchers (under 35 years of age) are invited to join this event to share and discuss their recent results in the form of brief presentations, which will be followed by discussions. This forum will help to establish global co-operations and networks among young scientists to approach future challenges in ceramic science and technology.

This interdisciplinary workshop will cover, but is not limited to the following thematic areas:

  • Frontiers in ceramic chemistry
    • New precursors for functional ceramics
    • Chemical and physical functionalisation of ceramics
    • Ceramics and catalysis
  • Frontiers in hybrid materials and composites
    • Hybrid sensors and actuators
    • Biological and medical applications
    • Energy generation and storage, photocatalysis
    • Novel electronic and piezoelectronic materials. Printable electronics
    • Graphene-based materials and devices
    • TCO, LED and LCD materials and technologies
    • Innovative surfaces and display technologies
    • NEMS and MEMS devices
  • Young researchers’ mobility and networks
