Preliminary programme

It is time for awareness, action & innovation. Join the MaterialenNL community!


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:

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.

Keynote speakers

Bert Meijer - Eindhoven University of Technology
Title: From supramolecular polymers to functional materials

Ke Wang, Program Director - Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy
