Conference on Functional Materials Engineering


Join us at Conference FME, the conference that focuses on the complete value chain of functional materials engineering. Dive into the deposition, application, and characterization of functional materials through masterclasses, keynote presentations, and hands-on training sessions.

Explore four key topics

  1. Engineering Liquid-Surface Interactions: Discover mechanisms to enhance surface functionalities and improve coating and printing processes.
  2. Durable Coatings: Learn about advanced coating systems for metal surfaces, crucial for industries facing harsh environments.
  3. Flexible and Stretchable Electronics: Explore the integration of sensors and electronic components into flexible substrates for IoT applications.
  4. Organic and Perovskite Electronics: Investigate organic materials for energy applications, leveraging large-area deposition techniques.

Program Highlights

  • Day 1: Masterclasses by academic and industry experts.
  • Days 2 & 3: Presentations by PhD and postdoc researchers, complemented by keynote speeches.
  • Day 4: Industrial keynotes and poster sessions, with training on IP and valorization.


  • Flexible options: Single-day tickets at €50/day or a full 4-day pass for €150.
  • Special rates for PhD and postdoc researchers from Flemish universities and the EURECA-PRO network (€20 service fee for all days).
