There was a varied programme for the participants of the Biopolymers/Biomaterials Cluster network conference. Speakers from a broad range of different sectors talked about innovative biomaterials as well as cluster development.
The "Netzwerktreffen 2009" conference of the Biopolymers/Biomaterials Cluster was held in Stuttgart on 23rd June. Around 60 participants from industry and science used the opportunity to gather information about the industrial aspects of biomaterials and get insights into the cluster's project work. Will biopolymers be able to replace petrochemical products in the future? What is the additional benefit of biomaterials? What is the advantage of a cluster when entering new fields? These, and other questions, were dealt with at the lively plenary discussion that closed the conference.
