Nanobrücken 2020

Nanobrücken 2020 is a scientific conference about nanomechanical testing, organised by the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research and Bruker Hysitron. The conference covers all aspects of nanomechanical and nanotribological testing, including:

  • Advanced nanoindentation and associated techniques
  • In-situ testing in SEM/TEM
  • Theory/simulation
  • Biomechanical testing

The event will take place on 4-6 February 2020 at MPIE in Düsseldorf, Germany.

  • Discover new trends in nanomechanical and nanotribological testing
  • Learn from internationally renowned researchers
  • Hands-on, practical workshops
  • Network and collaborate, with social events each evening
  • Student talk and poster competitions
Nanobrücken is a fantastic venue for sharing ideas and seeing how others are applying the technique of nanoindentation.
Rachel G. Board, Swansea University
