Online Conference

You are invited to participate in the International Online Conference on Bio-hybrid Approaches to Solar Energy Conversion. It will take place from Tuesday 27th to Thursday 29th October at 11:00h UTC/London - 12:00h CET/Paris.

Currently, biological machineries including proteins, enzymes and whole cells are being integrated with synthetic materials for (solar) energy conversion, from fuel production to power generation. One of the key challenges for success in this rapidly growing field is to control the bio-material interface to enhance the complex charge/energy exchange processes which often form the bottleneck of the overall conversion process. This highly interdisciplinary conference showcases advanced techniques to characterise, design and synthesise the bio-material interface, and provides a forum for biologists, material scientists, electrochemists, and spectroscopists, to share ideas for tackling this challenge.

Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • Fundamentals in bioenergy
  • Fundamientals in biology
  • Biohybrid systems
  • Techniques for biological systems
What do I need to join?


In order to register to the conference, you need to sign up at nanoGe and buy your ticket.

Submit your contribution

Once you are registered you will be able to submit your contribution in the ‘Abstract Submission’ tab. You can submit:

  • Contributed Talk
  • ePoster

After the program is published, the oral abstracts not accepted as Contributed Talk can be presented as an ePoster. Please read the ‘Instructions for Authors’ tab.

Please check the submissions’ deadlines.
