– Materials for health, energy and environment –



This year, “Balard Conferences” honor materials and their applications in the fields of energy, environment and health. A great occasion to present the recent achievements performed within the four institutes of chemistry of Montpellier. All aspects will be covered, from the design and synthesis of materials and their precursors, to transformations into functional materials, as well as modelling and characterization.


Organized in Montpellier (ENSCM), from the 13rd to the 16th of June 2023, our aim is to put into context the chemical society’s contributions to tackle the XXIst century challenges around the three main themes brought forward by the I-SITE MUSE: “to feed, to protect and to cure”. The event will also be accessible on LIVESTREAMING with a networking platform, for free !


Since 2014, “Balard Conferences” are a privileged forum, where 250 academics and industrialists, including students and international experts, gather to foster scientific interactions, and to gain deeper insights around key research themes.


We welcome you to join us and share your work by presenting an oral communication and/or a poster in one of the three following topics:


1. Materials for health
2. Materials for energy
3. Materials for environment



A poster prize will be awarded to the best poster presented at the conference!



Submission deadline for abstracts (oral communication and poster) : February 2023


Deadline registration (free registration but mandatory) : June 1st, 2023
