Impressive lineup for Materials Protecting Society launch event

21 Jul 2017

The IOM3 conference series Materials Protecting Society has announced the lineup of speakers for its launch event on 20 September 2017.

The headline event's impressive lineup of speakers includes: Dr Debra Carr (Cranfield Defence and Security), Dale Walker (Ellen MacArthur Foundation), Peter Bonfield (CEO, Building Research Establishment), Ewa Bloch (Innovate UK - Urban Living and International), Professor Steve Evans (Institute of Manufacturing, Cambridge University) and Kevin Bygate (CEO, SPECIFIC).

It is recognised that new materials, new engineered solutions, new approaches to tackling problems and a broad view of how to assess the impacts of change will all need to be considered. There is a need for a broader understanding of the issues to be addressed and to recognise that success will depend upon a wide range of considerations as well as collaboration across sectors and supply chains.

This event will be aligned to the Government’s recently launched Industrial Strategy and will include how the sectors of manufacturing, construction, transport, health, environment, resource efficiency will feature in working towards solutions. Keynote speakers will set to address these high level challenges and will open discussion for potential solutions.

The launch event will be followed by a series of one-day events, over the next two years, to discuss these topics in greater detail. A key challenge for this modern-day imperative is to deliver quality solutions that are sustainable and which protect and improve the quality of life for all citizens now and in the future.

Industrialists, local government officers, engineers, emergency services personnel, academics and procurement teams should attend this event.

Materials Protecting Society is organised by IOM Communications Ltd on behalf of the Industry and Technology Policy Board of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
