From molecule to material, the BCC are back with a new scenography! This year, the "Balard Chemistry Conferences 2023" will focus on materials and their applications in the fields of energy, the environment and health.

This is a great opportunity to present the recent achievements of the four institutes of the chemistry cluster of the University of Montpellier. All aspects will be addressed, from the design and synthesis of materials and their precursors, to the transformations into functional materials, through modeling and characterization.

International and local speakers will present their research on membranes, geomaterials, biomaterials, nanomaterials and adaptive materials.
