About this Event

The focus of the event will be on 'Modern Day Alchemy and the Future of our Material World' which looks at the way our world is constantly evolving in terms of the materials that we use in our lives, and the way they are manufactured.

We will explore the latest innovations in this field across recycling, health and aerospace and explore the next generation of materials and how we might manufacture our way to a better future. We will also focus on the critical questions we need to answer to make our innovations a scalable reality.
