Future 3D Additive Manufacturing – the 3DMM2O Conference 2021: 3D Hybrid Organotypic Systems

28 February 2021 18:00 - 4 March 2021 13:00, Schöntal (near Heilbronn), Germany

The Cluster of Excellence “3D Matter Made to Order” (3DMM2O) organizes an annual conference on topics surrounding 3D Additive Manufacturing entitled “Future 3D Additive Manufacturing – The 3DMM2O Conference”.

The first itineration of the conference will take place from February 28 to March 4, 2020, in Schöntal Monastery (Germany) and will focus on 3D Hybrid Organotypic Systems. 3D Printing Technologies, 3D Stem Cell Culture, Tissue Engineering, Retinal Organoids, Development and Physiology of the Retina will represent the main conference topics. The organizers are Prof. Dr. Martin Bastmeyer, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Prof. Dr. Joachim Wittbrodt Heidelberg University.

The conference aims to be an international platform for science communication and for networking during which participants have the possibility to discuss state-of-the-art research and new approaches in the field of 3D Additive Manufacturing.

Invited to participate are national and international doctoral researchers, postdoctoral researchers and scientific researchers from various disciplines: Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Physics, Biophysics, Biology, Biomechanics, Mechanical Engineering, Material Sciences and Electrical Engineering.

3DMM2O is a joint Research Cluster of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Heidelberg University (Uni HD) (www.3dmattermadetoorder.kit.edu).

Registration and abstract submission are open until January 7, 2021.

The Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter Made to Order (3DMM2O) is a joint Research Cluster of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Heidelberg University (Uni HD) (www.3dmattermadetoorder.kit.edu).

The main task of the Cluster is to take 3D Additive Manufacturing to the next level by breaking current barriers of scale, precision and speed. The Cluster 3DMM2O aims at advancing 3D Additive Manufacturing from the macroscale to the micro-, nano-, and eventually to the molecular scale and at implementing the technology in three selected application areas.

Built upon the scientific expertise of 30 Principal Investigators from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Heidelberg University, the Cluster 3DMM2O is characterised by a highly interdisciplinary research approach. Principal Investigators, Postdoctoral and Doctoral researchers in chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, biophysics, biology, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering work together in the Cluster.

Funding for the Cluster of Excellence by the German Excellence Strategy and the Carl-Zeiss-Foundation started in January 2019.
