Bioelectrochemistry and more 2018

28 th and 29 th May 2018


On behalf of our annual “bioelectrochemistry and more…” meeting, numerous distinguished experts from this field as well as CEST’s in house experts and colleagues from the AIT gathered together in Wiener Neustadt. Our visitors attended from renowned institutions such as Imperial College (UK), Kobe University (JP) or the Flinders University in Australia (AU) and presented their current work as well as the newest trends and developments.


The mixture of experts from the field of materials (e.g. carbon based nanomaterials) biology (protein/receptor chemistry) and medicine created a highly fruitful basis for new project ideas and innovative new collaborations. This interdisciplinary approach is highly valuable for our Dept. of bioelectrochemistry, which is one of the three key areas in our COMET K1 center for Electrochemical Surface Technology. The organization of scientific highlights is crucial for a scientific exchange, an increased (international) visibility and the recognition of Wiener Neustadt as technological and research city. Beside these aspects, a number of young scientists (mainly PhD candidates) were invited to get the possibility to present their work in a short presentation and to get in contact with leading experts in a small and familiar environment.
