Engineering and Life

The conference provides a forum for interdisciplinary exchange and exploration of synergies between researches from life sciences as well as engineering sciences on October 19-21, 2016, in Hanover, Germany.

The realms of life sciences and engineering are often separated by a large divide. Fortunately, the growing interest from both areas in jointly addressing common challenges is contributing to the creation of new scientific and technological disciplines. On the one hand, concepts from the biological world can be used to solve engineering problems. For instance, nature inspired material synthesis and assembly can enable solutions for challenges in energy storage and conversion or electronics sustainability. On the other hand, engineering approaches can be applied to the study, emulation, interfacing or extension of biological systems. Thus, they can contributeing to the fundamental understanding of physiological/biochemical processes with deep impact on the development of technology in the field of healthcare, diagnostics, and human-machine interaction.

The potential synergies at the interface between electronics and the biosciences can be put into harnessed in practice by an increased interaction between scientists and engineers from these complementary disciplines. Therefore, this conference aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum for world-leading experts and newcomers from different backgrounds to exchange ideas and latest results.
