The Nano-Research Center NETZ/CENIDE of the University of Duisburg-Essen, the CAR-Center Automotive Research and D+S Automotive are jointly organizing the annual RUHR Symposium. With the RUHR Symposium we want to deepen the cooperation between industry and research and create a exchange forum for ideas and innovations in the field of functional materials. The industry and its top managers/developers will meet top researchers and discuss current facets of functional materials from the material level to the application.
