Krakow, Poland

25th - 27th, March 2020

Welcome

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to attend the “Advanced Technologies for the processing and characterization of nanostructured materials”, to be held on 25 - 27, March 2020, in Krakow, Poland.

The meeting is organized by AERoGELS COST Action (https://cost-aerogels.eu), AGH University of Science and Technology, International Centre of Electron Microscopy for Materials Science and Academic Centre for Materials and Nanotechnology AGH.

The training school ‘Advanced Technologies for the processing and characterization of nanostructured materials’ is organized under auspices of the Director of Academic Centre for Materials and Nanotechnology, Professor Marek Przybylski.

About

The training school programme comprises invited presentations focused on nanomaterials characterization especially of aerogels and fibers delivered by recognized specialists in the field from AGH University of Science and Technology and specialist from all over Europe. It will be a great opportunity for discussion, questions and exchange of ideas in the area of material science to encourage the collaboration within the AERoGELS COST Action CA18125.
