“The Corona Effect on Hydrogels”
Shapeable hydrogels with 3D morphology have shown great technological promise in last decades. Before corona, with the help of additive manufactured master molds, polysaccharide-based hydrogels were successfully fabricated with excellent mechanical strength and shape ability. Surprisingly, after corona lockdown, the fabricated hydrogels showed poor mechanical strength. Although, the problem was because of expired chemicals, we assume that the hydrogels were infected by COVID-19 :).
In 2021, the EuroTech Universities Alliance will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a range of activities throughout the year.
We invite you to join us and hope we will have the chance to meet, either virtually or in person.
