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 2023 brings together all these aspects and offers a broad package of activities.

What to expect

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

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.

Prior to the MaterialenNL Conference, on the 11th of December, the M2i Community Conference takes place.
