About the Webinar

Innovation & Entrepreneurship in Materials Science

Raw materials and materials science are critical in the transition towards green energy technologies, environmentally friendly manufacturing and securing sustainable growth for the future.

It's therefore crucial to understand the challenges modern-day industry and consumers are facing for materials science to contribute to the transformation towards more advanced, sustainable manufacturing processes and material choices. During this webinar, participants will be introduced to the challenges and opportunities associated with sustainable steels, fossil-free processes and additive manufacturing techniques for metals.

During this webinar, participants will learn about the EIT Raw Materials project DiENT and get a change to get in contact with the leading industry partners HYBRIT and Sandvik Additive Manufacturing.
