Imagine Membrane will be highly interactive with ample time for discussing science.

Invited speakers will present their view and perspective on currently hot topics in membrane science and technology, followed by Sessions chairs leading the open discussion. There are no parallel sessions and it is not original data that are in the foreground but the discussion of concepts. In this context, Imagine Membrane hopes to complement the regular conferences of the membrane community.

Student participation is highly encouraged and poster sessions have always been very dynamic and interactive

The programme is built around nine topics which comprise

  • Membrane materials
  • Membrane processes
  • Membrane transport
  • Membranes for water applications
  • Membranes in bio/health
  • Process intensification with membranes
  • Advanced membrane manufacturing
  • Membrane modifications
  • Membrane entrepreneurship

and in which outstanding lecturers will present their very personal view on current challenges.
