Abstract: 

The talk has no structure but self-organisation in initially disordered condensed matter systems is the intended general theme. How do carbon nanotubes (ordered) grow in chemical vapour (disordered)? How can we use heat (disordered) to charge a battery (ordered)? How is any of this connected to cancer therapy?
