Biomat is media partner of 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, which will take place on 1 February 2017 at Brightlands Chemelot Conference Center in Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.
Biomat.net is an organized and meaningful Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering communication resource for scientists, researchers, members of the business community, government, academia, and the general public. Biomat.net serves as a resource center to disclose news, data, and every other initiative related to biomaterials science and associated fields.
In brief, the “Biomaterials Resources on the Internet WebPage” was created in May 1998 and has considerably changed since then. In February 2000 it has become “The Biomaterials Network”, changing from the original collection of WWW links to an interactive source of information, where users could actively participate and communicate with each other. In 2016, Biomat.net adapts to modern networking by integrating its functionalities with social networks and mobile devices.
Since 2002, Biomat.net was selected for Current Web Contents, from the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI).
About 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference
Making and utilizing new materials to improve our life is a defining feature of mankind. We moved on from the stone age, to the bronze age, to the age of silicon and plastic. Now we are at the edge of a new episode, where technological breakthroughs allow us to create, investigate and dream of a total new range of structured forms of matter.
Two fields emerge strongly:
- 4D Printing offers a streamlined path from idea to full functionality.
- Mechanical metamaterials are structured materials with mechanical properties defined by their structure rather than their composition.
These are highly promising disciplines which develop in a synergistic manner, and which aim at creating entirely new forms of matter, which will lead to applications that have not yet been conceived.
