We cordially invite you to participate in the two-day workshop of the Innovation Forum "2D-Mat-Net" in Jena.

During this event, the great potential of 2D materials (including graphene, atomically thin semiconductors, and molecular nanomembranes) for innovations in various technological areas will be presented and discussed by renowned experts from academia and industry. The topics include bioanalytics, energy storage/conversion, photonics, optoelectronics as well as filtration and hydrogen technologies.

A special program event is the social get-together/dinner in the Botanical Garden of the University of Jena. Therewith, the workshop offers a unique opportunity for learning about current developments in the area of 2D materials, networking with industrial and academic partners, and getting involved in the development of the 2D-Mat-Net roadmap.

Funding opportunities on the state, federal, and EU levels will be elucidated during the workshop as well, which can enable the realization of your innovative project ideas.

Thanks to the financial support of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) your participation is free of charge. In order to provide you with effective discussions and exchange, the number of participants is limited to approx. 80 persons. 

The binding registration for the workshop can be found here, and the current workshop program is presented below.

We look forward to welcoming you on the 1st of September 2022 in Jena!
