The meeting will be held in the framework of the terminated funding initiative "Integration of Molecular components in Functional Macroscopic Systems".

The symposium is meant to provide a platform for scientific exchange. Based on the results achieved to date within the program, both the established state-of-the-art as well as relevant developments in connected fields will be presented. During the conference, the results of about 20 joint projects will be presented and discussed. In addition to the lectures, a poster session will provide the opportunity to present and discuss the results in greater detail.
