The event

Whether bionic structural colors for wooden surfaces, whether shape memory alloys in automatically switching shading systems or 4D-printed textile structures that can change shape after printing: functional materials and so-called "smart materials" can lead to solutions in many interior areas that integrate functional aspects in a material and help to reduce the overall use of resources. In this way, using smart materials, the goals of the European Green Deal can be promoted and emissions can be reduced. This is especially true for functional materials that are completely made from natural materials. Algae for example can help to clean the air indoors and free it from fine dust and bad smells. UV light of a certain wavelength can even help to rid surfaces of coronaviruses
