12 December 2023: MaterialenNL Conference 2023

Materials are everywhere, for everyone!

The MaterialenNL Platform is joining forces to unite the entire materials community at the first edition of the MaterialenNL Conference. 2 plenary lectures, 4 themes, 36 parallel presentations, demo’s and plenty of opportunity to network and make plans for cooperation. Registration will open ultimately October 1st.

The energy and materials transition towards a CO2-neutral and economically healthy society requires a high level of materials awareness in all sectors and layers of society. In this process, the scientific and industrial materials community heavily relies on policy, economic and societal factors: companies need support from the government; scientific knowledge development and transfer is critical. The MaterialenNL Conference brings all aspects together at Papendal, Arnhem and offers a broad package of activities.

The conference will be centered around four themes that materials research plays a critical role in:

  • Critical Raw Materials for the energy transition
  • Materials for circularity & sustainability
  • Creating the next generation of functional materials
  • Materials for life/consumer materials

The parallel sessions will be organized around the four themes. For the first edition all lectures during the parallel sessions will be given by invited speakers. The aim is to have a combination of lectures from representatives from universities (of applied science), research institutes and companies in each track. The preliminary programme will be available in the course of September.

It is time for awareness, action and innovation! Stay tuned and spread the word. Registration will ultimately October 1st, 2023.
