Indo-German Workshop 2019Multivalent and Adaptive Bioinspired Materials

The Indo-German Workshop 2019 unites Chemists from India and Germany under the general umbrella “Multivalent and Adaptive Bioinspired Materials”. Lectures from leading groups cover the main themes of Organic Synthesis, Supramolecular Chemistry, Laser Spectroscopy, Nucleic Acids and Functional Materials. The idea behind this rather informal scientific meeting is to spur discussions, to provide inspiration and to start collaborations between researchers from both countries.
