The technical battery, EV, advanced materials and ceramics industries in the UK are undergoing an unprecedented level of growth currently driven by both government and private investment. We are looking forward to getting major global organisations, start-ups and thought leaders together for two days of networking, collaboration and insight to help shape the next few years of these major industries.”
