Dear Colleagues!


MindLab on Functional Materials and 19th Winter Workshop on Molecular Acoustics, Relaxation and Calorimetric Methods, now combined to an international, fully integrated event, encompasses the most broadly considered topics of Materials of the Future. While conforming to the most stringent criteria of scientific excellence and enjoyable(!), fruitful collaboration, we invite you to discuss all aspects of organic, inorganic, and pure-carbon (including flexible and wearable) #electronics: OFETs, OLEDs, solar cells, supercapacitors, electrolytes, and #thermodynamics: heat transfer (io)nanofluids, multifunctional greases, phase change materials, etc. Let us electrify, illuminate, and warm up the future now – all in a sustainable and responsible way.

Our Workshop is partially funded from ‘The ExCEED Era Chair’ EU project (, which has continued to reinforce individuals in a strong-spirit team, seed new cross-collaborations, and vastly support the ongoing ones for three years now – in terms of both scientific disciplines and worldwide geography. Bringing to reality the ‘Silesian Organic Electronics Valley’, inter alia by establishing Centre of Organic and Nanohybrid Electronics (CONE) ( at the Silesian University of Technology, ExCEED dares to set standards and look far into the future of the next generations. The fruitful interrelationships and mutual inspirations represent the heart of the project, not only between academia and industry, including the de novo formation of spin-offs and spin-outs, but also creatively influencing local and global politics. Therefore, we organize this Workshop to efficiently (and impressively!) transform ideas into high-performance functionality.

ExCEED: Creation and development of an ERA Chair and Centre of Excellence in Organic Electronics as a strategic point of development for science and innovation in the Silesian region and Poland.

This Workshop is part of a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 952008.
