Materials Research Exchange (MRE) 2022

Materials Research Exchange (MRE) 2022 will be taking place 3rd – 5th October 2022 and will be delivered as face to face with potential virtual add-on for selected seminars.

The event is organised and run by KTN and Innovate UK, taking place at the Business Design Centre in London and will be full of new insights about what materials research and innovations are taking place to help the UK recover, become more resilient and grow.

We are planning for targeted seminars on a range of cutting-edge areas such as materials for Net Zero, including materials for the production, transportation and storage of hydrogen and the use of hydrogen in low carbon production of materials, the scale up of graphene and metamaterials for industrial applications. We will be holding sessions on technology transfer from UK’s world class research base, with a focus on high performance, net zero materials required by key sectors such as transport, medical, construction, packaging, clothing and other wearables. The event is designed to enable closer collaboration between industry and the materials research and innovation community.

Who will be attending?
Industrial representatives and investors will attend as delegates to view what the researchers have on show, discuss the ideas presented and form partnerships. Academics have the opportunity to network with other experts in different material disciplines. International delegates will have the opportunity to view UK’s world-leading capability in new materials development and meet with potential collaborators.

Expected Outcomes:
Connecting UK research and innovation excellence in advanced materials with UK product manufacturers and investors to collaborate and exploit latest advances
Providing a platform to attract international interests in UK advanced materials research, leading to export opportunities and inward investments
