Prof. Coppens is a Keynote Speaker at ‘Sustainable Materials Inspired by the Living world for Energy (SMILE 2016).
SMILE 2016 will take place at IFPEN, Rueil-Malmaison, from 6 to 8 April 2016, as part of itsRencontres Scientifiques events. This Conference is endorsed by the French Academy of Science.
Topics will include all bio-inspired materials (biomimetic functional materials, biocatalysts, green materials, synthetic materials) with improved (bulk or surface) properties and use. Non restrictive examples are biopolymer hybrids, biotemplates and bioreactors used for a number of applications, including heterogeneous catalysis, dual catalysis, photocatalysis, electrochemistry, energy storage, etc.
