Targeting Sustainable Materials, from Source to Structure, for Next Generation Technologies

Date: Thursday 25th January 2024

Format: Online

An online workshop introducing critical mineral mining, material carbon cost considerations and Circular Economy with opportunities for connecting advanced material researchers across the full chain of material/technology design from source to functional structure/application and beyond (reuse and recycling options) for a whole systems design approach to sustainable technology. An in-person collaboration event to follow-up on this workshop is planned for later in the year depending on success of this event and subsequent interest.
