3D Matter Made to Order

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

The Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter Made to Order organizes an annual research conference on topics surrounding 3D Additive Manufacturing.

Due to the situation regarding the coronavirus, the 2020 conference on 3D Hybrid Organotypic Systems had to be postponed. We are happy to confirm that conference will take place from March 1-4, 2021

We invite applications from national and international Doctoral Researchers, Postdoctoral and scientific researchers with interest in the fields of 3D bioprinting, tissue engineering, neuronal organoids, metamaterials and retinal development and physiology.

Please inform us in time if you need childcare during the event.
