Materials Meet Life

Empa in St. Gallen is pleased to invite the members and partners of the TEDD Competence Centre to a gripping journey through the world of research and innovation – especially into the world where «Materials Meet Life».

With innovative materials into a healthy future – the goal of Empa’s Research Focus Area “Health and Performance” is to provide innovative and sustainable technologies and products for the textile, biotech and medtech industries at the interface of materials and life sciences.

Protecting people, promoting good health in a sustainable manner, maintaining and improving our quality of life and physical constitution – these are and will remain major challenges, especially in view of our increasing life expectancy. In the Research Focus Area “Health and Performance”, we pool our interdisciplinary expertise in the fields of textiles, material science, biology, medtech and nanotechnology. We focus on the development of materials for medical applications in and on the human body, and re-search materials and new systems that protect and support us in our daily lives. Moreover, we examine the interactions of new materials closely and develop new methods to study this in biological systems – in close collaboration with hospitals and industrial partners.

We encourage you take the unique opportunity to meet the most important academic and industrial players of this area.
