KOSMOS Summer University 2011
Frontiers of Organic/ Inorganic Hybrid Materials for Electronics and Optoelectronics (KOSMOS 2011)
September 17th - 25th, 2011, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin – IRIS Adlershof
The main objective of KOSMOS 2011 was to teach fundamentals of the physics and chemistry of hybrid materials formed by combining inorganic semiconductors and metals with conjugated organic materials, which are of interest for applications in electronics and optoelectronics. KOSMOS 2011 enabled an advanced quality of international partnership in research on innovative hybrid materials and to foster young researchers.

KOSMOS 2011 on Frontiers of Organic/Inorganic Hybrid Materials for Electronics and Optoelectronics was a joint venture of Humboldt-Universität’s Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences IRIS Adlershof, Chiba University (Japan) and the National University of Singapore. It was the first in a series of KOSMOS Summer Universities at Humboldt-Universität that will take place annually with varying topics and partners.
KOSMOS 2011 was open to graduate students, doctoral candidates and postdocs who are interested in the physics and chemistry of hybrid organic/inorganic materials and who already have a basic knowledge in this field.
Participants presented posters on their own research, which were on display throughout KOSMOS 2011.
