Meeting Materials 2014 – High-performance products with lightweight materials

The 2014 edition of Meeting Materials will take place on May 27 at the Automotive Campus in Helmond. Over 50 people are expected to come together in this informative and informal networking event, in order to discuss high-performance products with lightweight materials from several points of view. Oral presentations on academic research subjects will alternate with findings from industrial experts and face-to-face interactions.

The first four presentations are related to lightweight materials in general and ceramics – ‘the other lightweight material’ – in specific. After the coffee break, four presentations will be given on naval and automotive applications of lightweight materials. After the buffet, the meeting will end with a ‘dessert presentation’ on lightweight materials in aerospace.

Eddy Brinkman – on behalf of the Bond voor Materialenkennis – participates in the organisation committee, and will chair part of this meeting.
