IPS Ceramics fully support the decision to move Ceramics UK, The Advanced Materials Show, Battery Cells & System Expo, and Vehicle Electrification Expo to July 2021. In these difficult times, ensuring the safety of our colleagues and our industry is an essential task and it is good to see the show organisers making arrangements which will do exactly that. We shall be exhibiting at the rescheduled show in July and look forward to meeting everyone there

There was a good mix of speakers from academia, SMEs and large industry to give various perspectives – an important factor for any technical discussion topic. The poll question was highly appropriate for any audience or topic; I found the results and subsequent discussion very interesting. Very informative panel and some interesting insights
