This years’ Conference

What began in 1997 as an annual meeting for the Dutch materials science community, existing of a dozen researchers, students and our industrial partners has blossomed into an invigorating event about innovations in materials. This year we again expect over 300 participants, representatives from SME’s to renowned industrial manufacturing companies, and from international universities and research institutes.

This year the Program consists of interesting workshops and presentations and of course a lot of opportunities to expand your network. Topics are:

  • Small scale Additive Manufacturing
  • Composites
  • Advanced Characterization
  • Damage in metal structures
  • Large scale Additive Manufacturing
  • Sustainable Concrete
  • Physics of Failure

Elevator pitch – your minute of fame

After last year’s success we will repeat the Elevator Pitch session again this year. Every SME or start-up involved with material development is invited to participate in this session. A unique opportunity to catch the attention of a very diverse audience through a 90 seconds presentation.
