The inaugural Christian-Albrechts Lecture will be held in Kiel on June 10 at 6 p.m. during the “2nd Euro Intelligent Materials” conference, taking place from 10-12 June, 2015

The lecture, open to the public, will be held as part of the 350th anniversary celebrations of the founding of Christian-Abrechts University, and will be a conference highlight.

Dr. Richard Fu from Northumbria University (UK) will deliver a talk with background information and current developments in the area of shape memory materials and piezoelectric thin films. In particular, one focal point will be the biological and lab-on-a-chip applications of these materials. In Dr. Richard Fu, we have found a renowned scientist for this event. He is well-known for his pioneering work in the area of shape memory materials and piezoelectric films for microactuators, microsensors and microfluidic systems, and he will enhance the conference and the Christian-Albrechts Lecture with his presentation.
