About the Summit

This two-day event is composed of invited talks, panel discussions and a poster session, which will focus heavily on biomedicine, catalysis, sensors and energy harvesting emphasizing the concept of sustainability and materials criticality. The speakers list includes esteemed members from academia and industry to bridge a discussion across the entire research and value chain of advanced materials technologies. The sessions will allow for active participation from the audience during the discussion. In order to promote the visibility of young students, rapid-fire presentations will be part of each session.
