8th European Forum for Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers

September 2-5, 2019
Bratislava, Slovakia

Welcome to the official website of the European Forum for Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers. The conference is to be held at Bratislava, Slovakia during September 2-5, 2019. Previously well known as IC-MAST, the European Forum for Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers aims to provide a structured networking environment for the scientific and business community that is enrolled in the field of Materials Technology and Applications. This forum is a great opportunity for scientists, students and professionals to meet and discuss key issues, to communicate developments and share best practices by providing lectures, posters, exhibitions and both formal and informal social gatherings..

All Conference related actions (submission, registration etc) are performed on-line by creating an account. After that, authors can login and have access to a number of tools for submitting a paper, proposing for a workshop, registering, send requests, manage their reviews etc.

VALUEMAG is a BBI-JU project, coordinated by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) is focusing on advanced methods for magnetic cultivation of algae. The innovative methodology provides:

  1. Better, faster and cheaper quality and quantity of micro-algae cells, feeding micro-algae by magnetic nanoparticles and growing them in inclined surfaces, using solar energy, CO2 and minimized quantity of water. Production is one order of magnitude larger than the classic technologies, with significantly less resources
  2. Optimum separation of valuable ingredients in algae, namely poly-phenols, beta-carotene etc., by using selective magnetic separation, a technology developed at the NTUA, using magnetic particles. The project results indicate 95% and 99,8% poly-phenol separation within 10 and 60 minutes respectively
  3. Realization of advanced and valuable products, like rejuvenating medicines, cosmetics, bio-degradable polymers, food supplements etc.

The project aims at excellence in bio-based technologies, offering the possibility of using the Greek & Mediterranean climate to advance productivity and bio-based products.
