Posted on: 10/09/2021

KTN is delighted to announce that Materials Research Exchange will be back in 2022 at the Business Design Centre in London.

KTN and Innovate UK are pleased to announce the 2022 edition of the Materials Research Exchange and Investor Showcase – MRE 2022.

This flagship event will be delivered as face to face with potential virtual add-on for selected seminars. It will take place in London at the Business Design Centre, Islington and will be full of new insights about what materials research and innovations are taking place to help the UK recover, become more resilient and grow.

We are planning for targeted seminars on a range of cutting-edge areas such as materials for Net Zero, including materials for the production, transportation and storage of hydrogen and the use of hydrogen in low carbon production of materials, the scale up of graphene and metamaterials for industrial applications. We will be holding sessions on technology transfer from UK’s world class research base, with a focus on high performance, net zero materials required by key sectors such as transport, medical, construction, packaging, clothing and other wearables.

We will discuss the recently published UK Innovation Strategy and the impact it is having for materials, accelerating materials design and discovery, sustainable materials and materials for net zero.

The event is designed to enable closer collaboration between industry and the materials research and innovation community.


Who will be attending?

Industrial representatives and investors will attend as delegates to view what the researchers have on show, discuss the ideas presented and form partnerships. Academics have the opportunity to network with other experts in different material disciplines. International delegates will have the opportunity to view UK’s world-leading capability in new materials development and meet with potential collaborators.


Expected Outcomes

  • Connecting UK research and innovation excellence in advanced materials with UK product manufacturers and investors to collaborate and exploit latest advances.
  • Providing a platform to attract international interests in UK advanced materials research, leading to export opportunities and inward investments.


Registration details and exhibitor opportunities will be announced soon!
