The dates are 14 & 15 December 2020. 14 December will be a private event for our community and 15 december is a public event. Registration is required.

Special topic 15 December ? National Agenda Materials (by Prof.dr. Albert Polman)

The MaterialenNL platform consists of the bundling of academic parties, applied research organizations, universities of applied sciences and industrial parties and sector organizations. On behalf of the Top Sectors Chemistry, Energy and High Tech Systems & Materials, the platform has complied this agenda. It demonstrates that the Dutch economy largely depends on materials and that new and improved materials have an enormous impact on our daily lives. The agenda describes the research directions in which these parties wish to collaborate.
