How to Bring Together Material Science and Manufacturing Technologies?

Wednesday 14th September 2022

Theatre :  Skills, Training and Strategy 


This year we will have an amazing opportunity to find ourselves in the heart of UK Metal Industry in UKME 2022 and discover the top developments in the world of material science.

At the same time, there are quite a lot of conversations happening between the manufacturers, material providers, Tier 1 and 2 partners, OEMs, highlighting the gap in knowledge and skills between two areas, such as material science and manufacturing; and potentially this is induced by the reduction of interest from young generations in engineering skills.

In this panel, we will be discussing the opportunities to bridge this gap and how it could be done efficiently.
