The 2018 Materials Research Exchange & Investor Showcase (MRE2018) taking place on March 12 and 13, 2018 at the Business Design Centre in London will provide an excellent platform to develop commercial success of UK-generated materials innovation by showcasing the groundbreaking new materials and processes to industry to accelerate the process of taking these through to commercialisation.

Organised by the Knowledge Transfer Network and Innovate UK and supported by EPSRC and Dstl, this unique two day exhibition and conference will showcase the richness of the UK materials research and investment opportunities providing an ideal opportunity to absorb current trends and take a glimpse of future innovations. This is the ideal event to build links within the materials supply chain to strengthen the UK materials offer to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and End Users.

The last celebrated Materials Research Exchange event in 2014 was highly successful and the 2018 event promises to be even bigger and better with over 600 delegates expected daily. It will include a conference programme and exhibition.

Meet investors, inform and be informed by industrial strategy and network with the entire materials landscape, from academics to spin-outs to SMEs and product designers to manufacturers and users – all under one roof!
