Euromat 2017

EUROMAT is the premier international congress in the field of materials in Europe. The EUROMAT2017 congress venue will be the “Thessaloniki Concert Hall”, a unique complex of buildings conveniently located at the seafront of the city.

Thessaloniki is a vibrant and modern European city, one of the most important trade and business centres in the Balkans with great history dating back to around 315 BC. The city is situated strategically in Macedonia, Northern Greece, and is easily accessible from all over the world. Nearby archaeological sites from the time of Alexander the Great and Roman and Byzantine times offer great opportunities for sightseeing before or after the congress.

Thessaloniki is one of the largest student cities in South-eastern Europe and has the largest student population in Greece. The city has two state universities, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, which was founded in 1926 and is the largest University in Greece and the University of Macedonia, as well as the Technological Education Institute of Thessaloniki. It also hosts a leading Research Center, the Center for Research and Technology-Hellas (CERTH), and many private international institutions, affiliated with and/or accredited by overseas universities.

In the year 2017 FEMS will be 30 years old. This milestone in the history of FEMS will be celebrated with special events in the Congress, organised to highlight this special occasion.

We look forward to seeing you in Thessaloniki in EUROMAT 2017.
