Materials Week

June 17 - June 21

MaterialsWeek 2024 aims to bring together – for the first time – the numerous small and large research and innovation (R&I) communities that are driving advances in materials innovation that manifests itself in 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 an interdisciplinary meeting venue for communication and collaboration over and beyond community boundaries. This consolidation aims to ultimately foster the best joint R&I approaches for meeting today’s challenges and innovation requirements, including, but not limited to more sustainability, circularity and resilience in materials’ uses, and higher reliability and efficiency in both the R&I, as well as the sustainability assessment and safety testing of materials.

MaterialsWeek 2024 will highlight and address all relevant R&I aspects along different materials value chains, including from up-stream pre-competitive basic research to downstream syntheses, characterisation, imaging and testing, piloting, scale-up, use and end-of-life (incl. re-use, re- and up-cycling), highlighting and elaborating solutions to the challenges arising in the context of the overarching policies (e.g. Green Deal, CSS, Chips Act, Circular Economy, Bioeconomy, Critical Raw Materials Act, to name but a few), and their targets (e.g. SDGs, decarbonisation).

In bringing the R&I communities of energy materials, graphene, nanotechnology, bioeconomy, lightweight materials, smart materials and others innovative materials together into a single, solution-driven environment embracing all advanced materials, MaterialsWeek 2024 aims to establish an interdisciplinary, collaborative ecosystem to jointly advance materials R&I through:

  • concepts, such as SSbD, Industry Commons, MaaS,
  • cross-cutting approaches, such as digitalisation, digital twinning, standardisation/harmonisation, and
  • policy approaches, such as circularity, climate change prevention, sustainability, and resilience.
