It was the third ABC Conference, organized by the Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials, in short AMIBM. In it, Maastricht University, RWTH Aachen and the Fraunhofer Institute work together on an integrated, multidisciplinary research program. The aim is to bridge the gap between fundamental and applied scientific research and the market.
This was expressed during the conference in the many lectures by experts in which the knowledge of chemistry, biology, medicine, sustainability and marketing were combined into a fascinating mix that gave a good picture of the activities of AMIBM: from biocatalysis to DNA research on spider silk , from self-enhanced biocomposite to organ tissue regeneration and from microrobotics to textiles.
