ISGS 7th Summer School Presentation

You are invited to participate in the 7th ISGS Summer School: Hybrid Materials: from basics to cutting edge applications, from the 1st to the 4th of September 2020 in Castellón, Spain. 

Hybrid materials are a hot topic and one of the most open to innovation and ready to technology transfer. 

This Summer School will show a comprehensive overview of hybrid materials, from the basic know-how behind the development of hybrids to their applications in cutting edge technologies with impact in our society.   

The Summer School offers the possibility to have a multidisciplinary approach with some of the best known and active researchers in the field. It is a unique opportunity to share ideas and deepen your background during the full time of the school.

The summer school is open to researchers and industrials interested in the field of Hybrid Materials. It is specially recommended for PhD students and early stage Postdoc researchers from all around the world interested in or working on topics related to hybrid organic-inorganic materials and their applications.

International Sol Gel Society (ISGS)

International Sol Gel Society (ISGS) is an international, interdisciplinary, not-for-profit organization whose primary purpose and objective is the advancement of sol-gel science and technology. ISGS aims are both to represent the particular needs and aspirations of the international sol-gel community and to support this sol-gel community.

Since the inception of the highly successful Sol-Gel Workshop series in Padova during 1981, sol-gel science and technology has evolved from its origins within traditional materials science (mainly glass and ceramics) to become an extraordinarily multidisciplinary area of research, spanning chemistry, physics, biology, materials science and nanotechnology.

ISGS, grouping of scientists who are interested in sol-gel science and technology at the begining, evolved over time in a professional, fully functional, scientific society.

  • Chemistry and fundamentals of the sol-gel process and non-conventional synthesis (sol-gel transition, self-assembly, O-I interfaces...)
  • Functional organic-inorganic hybrid materials: coatings, thin films, particles, colloids, composites, self-assembled systems
  • Porous materials and hierarchical structured materials (aerogels, template-based...)
  • Hybrid materials for sensors, optics, photonic and optoelectronic applications  
  • Hybrid materials for energy and environmental applications
  • Hybrid materials for electronic, magnetic and ferroelectric applications  
  • Hybrid materials for health and medical application
