Abstract submission deadline is on the 20th of January

This conference will bring together researchers and students from fields related protein material, including new bioplastics, food production, biomedicine, and nanomaterials. This year we will have a special focus on how protein material research can help us move towards the UN sustainable development goals. The conference is an initiative of the Swedish Protein Materials Network ( Thanks to generous support of the KTH sustainability office, FORMAS and the Swedish Research Council (VR), the conference is free of charge for all participants

We have already signed up a number of exceptional national and international speakers:

  • Sarah Bondos (Texas A&M University, USA) – Self-assembled protein biomaterials
  • Sierin Lim (NTU, Singapore)  –  Hybrid nanodevices by utilizing protein engineering
  • Marleen Kamperman (Groningen, Netherlands)  –  Bio-inspired functional polymers
  • Artur Ribeiro (University of Minho, Portugal)  –  Enzymes for textile, cosmetics, and drug delivery
  • Oliver Lieleg (TUM, Germany)  –  Mucus rheology and tribology
  • Ramune Kuktaite (SLU)  –  Wheat protein materials
  • Karin Ã…kerfeldt (Lund/ Haverford College)  –  Protein materials for light harvesting and ion sensing)

The conference is open for abstract submission for both poster and oral presentation.
