How materials serve in innovations for the human health and wealth

This colloquium, hosted by DGM in honour of Professor Wolfgang Kaysser will give an overview on materials innovation in various applications serving mankind for a better life and wealth.  The Helmholtz Center Geesthacht´s mission “Science creates benefits – from basic research to application” is also the motto of this colloquium. The topics of the four sessions cover light weight structures for modern mobility and materials for improving the quality of life in the same way as the more theoretical, physical and chemical aspects of materials. The variety of topics shows the contemporary state in the development of Professor Kaysser’s broad spectrum of activities during his professional career. Starting with a deep insight in powder technology at the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart it was followed by his work at the national aeronautics and space research centre DLR.

Since 2003 he is Scientific Director of the Helmholtz Center Geesthacht where he manages a team of about thousand scientists and technicians dealing with materials from metals to polymers and from fundamental science towards solutions applied in German and international companies beside coastal research as well. The colloquium comprises four sessions starting with "Light weight structures, joining, local engineering" followed by presentations related to "In situ and in operandum". Two further sessions in the afternoon relate to "Biomaterials for medical applications: magnesium, polymers" and "Polymer materials: membranes".

The participation is free of charge. For registration please send an e-mail to Ms. Oona Pietruck.
