Industrial session

The new session “Industrialization of Sol-Gel Science and Technology and Innovative Applications” was successful and has perfectly fulfilled its two goals: highlight the potential of sol-gel science for different industrial applications ranging from bulk to thin-films, facilitate exchange between the academic and the industrial worlds.. It was an incentive to attend for a non academic public. The format “plenary” for this session was appreciated by the attendees.

This year again, the ISGS awarded several Prizes in recognition of interesting, creative and quality works:

– Life Achievement Award
– Ulrich Award
– 4 best poster Awardees
– 2 travel grants
