MRE 2020 is taking place on 18–20 February 2020 at the Business Design Centre in London to develop the commercial success of UK-generated materials innovation by showcasing ground-breaking new materials and their manufacturing processes to industry. The aim is to bring these materials to the commercialisation stage more quickly.
MRE 2020, organised by the Knowledge Transfer Network and Innovate UK, will demonstrate how the UK is a global hub of excellence in materials research, as well as how materials is an area which will continue to propel the nation’s economy to future success.
MRE 2020 will take the form of a two-day exhibition and conference, showcasing the wealth of UK materials research, investment opportunities and UK progress towards Industry 4.0; it is the ideal chance to build links within the materials supply chain to strengthen the UK materials offer to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and end users.
The last event, in 2018, included 70 exhibitions, 1300 delegates and 89 speakers from BEIS, UKRI, industry leaders and key academics.
