LAM organizes the 2D WORKSHOP / 9 JUNE 2023

The workshop will focus on important current trends and activities in the area of preparation, characterization and application of 2D materials in general as well as on current capabilities in the field of 2D materials in Slovakia. It will also serve as a networking opportunity, aiming to facilitate possible scientific collaborations.

When: 9 June 2023

Where: Comenius University Science Park, (link:, Ilkovičova 8, Bratislava

Registration: There are no registration fees. We kindly ask the participants to register via the following link – REGISTRATION no later then 8 June 2023.
