Ceramics Innovation Workshop
The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), in support of Innovate UK, is organising this workshop, as part of a consultation, to identify the needs and support requirements for ceramic innovation in the UK.
The meeting will review the opportunities for ceramic development and capture the challenges in making them a reality.
You are invited to attend this FREE 1-day workshop to share your views, insights and experience as we seek input from industry, the research base, and other organisations to develop a set of strategic actions and outline investment programmes for ceramics.
The key outcome of the consultation will be a 5 – 10 year sector specific technology strategy and roadmap, which will help Innovate UK identify areas for potential future investment in ceramic technologies.
