Industry leaders will come together in November to share their insights on the future of materials in an event hosted by Clean Growth UK, a network led by the University of Brighton’s Green Growth Platform.
From the mixing of copper and tin to make bronze to the digital revolution made possible by silicon, materials have shaped the course of humanity. And as we find ourselves facing the defining crisis of our time, the event will pose the question: how can material innovation help us in the transition to a sustainable economy?
On Thursday 26 November (10am-12pm), Clean Growth UK, led by the University of Brighton, will bring together a suite of industry leaders to share their insights on what could happen in the decades to come. This event is an opportunity for buyers, specifiers and waste specialists across the supply chain to meet the innovators creating the materials being reinvented for the 21st century.
Talks at the event will cover:
• How public attention on plastic pollution is driving innovation and creating new markets
• The role of government in recycling infrastructure
• Creating a circular economy – why is it taking so long?
• The business impact of being sustainable
There will also business networking opportunities, business exhibition booths and the chance to speak with Clean Growth UK’s innovation and business growth advisers.
The virtual business exhibition booths will provide an opportunity for businesses in the energy sector to showcase their offers and interact directly with delegates during and after the event.
The event runs from 10.00am to 12.00pm on Thursday 26 November using the virtual conference platform Hopin. Businesses interested in a virtual exhibition booth should contact +44(0)20 8058 0845 for more details.
