Functional Materials for a Sustainable Future

Last month, on the 15th of May, the University of Sheffield Functional Materials and Devices group hosted a workshop centred on the topic of "Functional Materials for a Sustainable Future". A diverse number of speakers from out own group, and collaborators, and industrial partners, gave insightful and exciting talks on how a range of materials can be designed and fabricated, for use in a wide range of applications.

Presentations ranged from magnetic materials for cooling, solar power materials, and the use of computational simulations to model novel materials. The workshop was also an opportunity for the FMD group to demonstrate the value of KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnerships) whereby researchers can pursue underpinning research to enable novel materials discovery and applications.

Guests included representatives from QinetiQ, Johnson Matthey, CeramTec, Rolls-Royce, and more (a full list can be found on the event page).
