Materials Research Exchange

This conference and exhibition will showcase the richness of UK materials research and innovation providing an ideal opportunity to absorb current trends and take a glimpse of future innovation.

We are supporting this event, which has been organised by the Knowledge Transfer Network and Innovate UK. The 2018 Materials Research Exchange & Investor Showcase provides an excellent platform to help develop the commercial success of UK-generated materials research and innovation.

The UK is an acknowledged global hub of excellence in materials and research know-how. This event will demonstrate the ground-breaking new materials and processes to industry to accelerate the process of taking these through to commercialisation.

From metals, powders and textiles to graphene and polymers - innovations in advanced materials research have numerous applications across a wide range of sectors. MRE2018 will be the largest and finest materials innovation event of the year...designed by those working in materials for the materials sector to engage with key application sectors in the UK and beyond.
