Meeting Materials 5 April 2022
– public event –

We look back at a successful conference with a total of 210 participants on both days.

Due to COVID-19 the December 2021 conference was posponed until April 2022. We aimed for a live conference and we achieved that goal!

This year the Program consists of interesting workshops and presentations.

Meeting Materials is free of charge and open for everyone who is interested in materials development. The conference is an opportunity to learn about the latest insights and developments in the field of innovative and smart materials, along with ways in which these materials can stimulate economic progress and a sustainable society. This day is co-organised with 4TU.HTM and supported by the Bond voor Materialenkennis (BvM).

WAAM Design Contest for Young Engineers

During the annual Meeting Materials conference, Grade2XL held its second open Additive Manufacturing Design Contest for young engineers. For the Grade2XL contest we challenged young professionals and researchers to design a novel, multi-material product that can be printed with wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM). The expert jury had a tough job judging all the designs that were submitted, The winning team will see their idea being realized.

During the live award ceremony the chair of the jury, Marcel Hermans (Associate Professor at Delft University of Technology) and co-chair Constantinos Goulas (Assistant Professor at University of Twente) announced the winning team. Meet the winners of the Grade2XL Design Contest here.
