Inclusive event that will bring together key stakeholders and the broader UK community in the field of metamaterials

Metamaterials are engineered structures designed to interact with electromagnetic radiation or acoustics in a desired fashion. They usually comprise an array of structures smaller than the wavelength of interest. These so-called meta-atoms can interact with the electric and magnetic components of light in a way that natural atoms do not.

Knowledge Transfer Network in partnership with Innovate UK are organizing this inclusive event that will bring together key stakeholders and the broader UK community in the field of metamaterials to address how this valuable expertise can be directed to explore key growth markets, and to demonstrate the opportunities for UK collaboration to exploit new market opportunities in the areas of:

  • Novel Antennae
  • Acoustic and vibrational damping
  • Optics

This showcase event will build upon the successful Metamaterials community event held at IOM3 in March 2017.

The event will bring together academics and industrialists – structured with presentations – but designed to focus on funding, strategic interactions, novel collaborations and real product development opportunities – to be first to market.

Invited speakers will include BAe Systems, Metaboards, Exeter University, University of Southampton, EPSRC, etc.

There will be ample Exhibition Space for demonstrations and networking and Poster displays for PhD students and Post-docs to promote their research activities and results.

Attendance is free of charge – but numbers are limited to the first 150 delegates – so please register early.
