FunGlass Symposium at 26th International Congress on Glass in Berlin

From July 3- 8, 2022, eleven representants of FunGlass (7 researchers and 4 PhD candidates) attended to the 26th  International Congress on Glass  (ICG 2022) held in Berlin, Germany. This year ICG2022 provided plenary sessions and 45 technical sessions grouped in 8 symposia for glass scientists and technologists. More than 800 participants attended to ICG2022, which celebrated the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the German Societies of Glass Technology (DGG). Our members shared their research results in the FunGlass symposium on 7th July providing an overview on the activities performed by different departments in collaboration with external partners (Prof. Alicia Duran – Spain, Prof. Enrico Bernardo – Italy, Prof. Aldo Boccaccini – Germany and Prof. Lothar Wondraczek – Germany).

After the introductory lecture by Prof. Dusan Galusek on the “research activities of FunGlass – An overview”, other contributions were carried out by:

  • Andressa Trentin: The role of sol-gel chemistry on the anti-corrosion performance of hybrid coatings on aluminum alloys
  • Ashokraja Chandrasekar: Bioactive glass coatings on magnesium alloys and it’s in vitro studies intended for biomedical implant applications
