Main Topics

  • Fundamental research

  • Collagen structure and modelling

  • New preparation techniques and processing technologies

  • Chemical and physical modification

Venue "Alte Mensa", Freiberg / Germany

The 8th Freiberg Collagen Symposium will take place in the Alte Mensa, Petersstraße 5 in Freiberg / Saxony. This is located in the middle of the pedestrian zone, in the center of the city, in the immediate vicinity of the Obermarkt. The large hall is used by the TU Bergakademie Freiberg for celebrations and examinations. So it also offers us enough space for networking, listening to the lectures and catering during the breaks.
