Två personer sitter bredvid varandra på ett möte

Materials week 2024

MaterialsWeek 2024 aims to bring together small and large Research and Innovation (R&I) communities that are driving advances in materials innovation manifested across diverse value chains and industrial markets.

By addressing all materials application sectors and R&I communities concerned with the (re-)discovery, identification, improvement, handling, processing, manufacturing, (re-)use and recycling of materials, MaterialsWeek 2024 provides a cross-disciplinary meeting venue for communication and collaboration over and beyond traditional community boundaries.

The aim of the meeting is to combine insights, theories, and methods from different fields to address complex issues. In addition, the meeting will emphasize the fluidity of disciplinary boundaries and encourage the free flow of ideas and methods between different fields.

MaterialsWeek 2024 aims to establish an interdisciplinary, collaborative ecosystem to jointly advance materials R&I through:

  • concepts, such as Safe-and-Sustainable- by-Design (SSbD), Industry Commons, Materials as a Service (MaaS),
  • cross-cutting approaches, such as digitalisation, digital twinning, standardisation/harmonisation, FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable) and Open Data, and
  • policy approaches, such as circularity, climate change prevention and adaption, sustainability, and resilience, and science-policy dialogue and translation.

When: 17th-21st of June 2024
Where: Crown Plaza Hotel, Limassol, Cyprus

Deadline for abstract submission: 20th of March 2024 at 17:00 CET
