Lectures, Presentations, Conferences, Key Notes, Symposiums, Talks, Panels, Crits, Reviews, Interviews, ...

We are regularly invited to speak at conferences and symposia or for lectures and presentations at various international institutions. Due to our rich expertise in novel materials and technologies and a continuous involvement in academic research, we are able to address a broad range of topics.

We have experience in organizing conferences, events, workshops or exhibitions for industrial and public clients. One of the most successful events was ALIVE 2013- international symposium on adaptive architecture at ETH Zurich, which attracted over 150 participants.

Moreover we are proficient in reviewing existing content and providing constructive feedback. We do interviews, lead panels and discussions or join crits and presentations.
