The meeting will be held in the framework of the funding initiative "Integration of Molecular components in Functional Macroscopic Systems".
Currently numerous novel nano-scale materials and components with exceptional properties are developed. However, wider-scope applications based on these components still remain the exception. The main focus of the symposium, therefore, is to promote the advancement of molecular or nanoscale units to more complex functional systems at a macroscopic scale.
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, about 25 project leaders will present their results. Furthermore, three plenary lectures by invited experts are planned. In addition to the lectures, a poster session will provide the opportunity to present and discuss results of all project parts.

Venue and Public Transport
The conference is held at Herrenhausen Palace, a new conference center in Hanover, Germany. You can reach the venue by subway: Take line 4 or 5 and get off at "Herrenhäuser Gärten".
The funding initiative "Integration of Molecular Components in Functional Macroscopic Systems" was launched in November 2007. Up to now the Volkswagen Foundation supported more than 50 projects with about 30 Mio. EUR. The final call for new proposals will be in August 2016.
