Aim of the workshop

A sustainable future requires not only an energy transition, but also a materials transition in the coming three decades. The transition towards sustainable production and consumption of materials, over the whole materials life cycle, requires huge investments, fundamental and applied research and technology development, as well as political and societal support and motivation. Materials science and engineering will play a crucial role in developing the technologies and materials that are needed to achieve a transition to a carbon neutral and circular society.   

In this joint workshop 4TU.HTM,  M2i and the LDE Centre for Sustainability aim to bring together a wide range of scientists to share their knowledge on what this future society will look like and how materials science and engineering can help to achieve a sustainable future. We aim to increase awareness of the importance of materials amongst colleagues and students from relevant scientific fields. Therefore, we invite everyone to attend this workshop, which will be held on a location in Utrecht, providing connections to attend online.
