Six New Materials Foresight Reports Launched

The Institute has launched a series of six new Foresight reports for the materials sector. The reports were launched by Professor Graham Davies, Chairman of the Foresight Materials Panel, on Monday 15th December during the Institute’s international conference on Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing.

The Foresight Materials Panel, with the administrative and secretarial support of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, has reviewed a number of specific areas where materials developments are pivoted to wealth creation in the UK. The six new reports combine to provide specific reference points for Biomaterials, Fuel Cells, Functional Materials, and Smart Materials. Separate reports have also been produced to highlight issues affecting the initiation and growth of spin out business in the materials sector and an overview of Technology Road Maps for a number of important materials sectors.

Single reports are available free of charge. Additional copies are priced at £3.00 each plus postage and packing.
