Plenary sessions

 

The line-up of the plenary speakers is outstanding and these events are wonderful opportunities to learn and to be inspired. The collective wisdom, perspective, and leadership experience of the five individuals will be a highlight of the conference week.

Several outstanding speakers have already confirmed their participation:

  • Prof. Klaus Müllen, Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz, Germany - EU Materials Impact Prize recipient
  • Prof. Maurizio Prato, University of Trieste, Italy - EU Materials Impact Prize recipient
  • Prof. Masaharu Shiratani - University of Kyushu, Japan
  • 2023 EU-40 Materials Prize recipient:
  • 2023 MRS Mid-Career Researcher Award recipient:

It's hard to imagine a richer offering of speakers. And that's the point of the plenary sessions: they provide a shared experience for all conference attendees.

Plenary sessions are a time for a break from the details of your week, a time to be stimulated and to reflect on the values that brought us to the field and that continue to motivate us each day.
