IDA Materials Summit 2024

IDA Materials Summit 2024
Learn and get inspired from international experts about the latest advances in materials science from various disciplines as sports technology, space materials, fusion reactors, Li-ion batteries and enabling technologies for sustainable materials.

Join the IDA Materials Summit, hosted by IDA Materials and IDA Polymer of the Danish Society of Engineers, to learn about the latest advances in materials science from various disciplines and applications.  

This event will feature talks from international experts on topics such as sports technology, space materials, fusion reactors, Li-ion batteries, sustainable materials, electronic waste, and hyperspectral imaging.  

If you think that that sounds like a broad range of topics, then this is exactly the intention. New ideas and solutions to challenges are often inspired by methods applied in completely other topics. This will be the mantra of the event, where we will embrace the diverse world of materials science, by seeking inspiration from the latest developments in a broad range of applications, ranging from materials in extremely challenging environments to recycling and upcycling. 

Language of the event is English
