On Friday November 28th, the yearly meeting of the Thermische Analyse Werkgroep Nederland, will be organised in Beneden Leeuwen, The Netherlands. As the winner of a TAWN travel grant for attending the European Symposium on Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (ESTAC 2014) in Espoo, Finland earlier this year, ir. Joost Brancart will present a lecture titled "Thermomechanical properties of reversible polymer network systems based on Diels-Alder chemistry". These reversible covalent networks are currently used for developing self-healing materials for coating applications and robotics.
