The Knowledge Transfer Network Metamaterials event, organised in partnership with Innovate UK, takes place on Tuesday 16 January 2018 in London.
The event is designed for all those involved in the metamaterials sector by bringing together key stakeholders and the broader UK community in the field to network, explore key growth markets and to demonstrate the opportunities for UK collaboration. The aim is to exploit new market opportunities in the areas of Novel Antennae, acoustic and vibrational damping, and Optics.
The Knowledge Transfer Network Metamaterials event, organised in partnership with Innovate UK, takes place on Tuesday 16 January 2018 in Browns Covent Garden, London, and is a follow up to the previously successful Metamaterials event in March 2017. The event will bring together academics and industrialists – structured with presentations – and will focus on funding, strategic interactions, novel collaborations, and real product development opportunities – to be first to market. It will also provide excellent networking!
Programme update (more names still to be announced):
Chair - Dr Robert Quarshie, Knowledge Transfer Network
Innovate UK and Metamaterials - Dr Ben Walsh, Innovate UK
Overview of Metamaterials in UK - Prof Ian Youngs, Defence Science & Technology Laboratory
Prof Alastair P. Hibbins, University of Exeter
Dr Irina Khromova, Metaboards
Working with Innovate UK and Metamaterials -
Future Opportunities Discussion - Antennae - Dr Kevin Mitchell, BAe Systems (Chair)

There will be ample exhibition space for demonstrations and networking, and, new for 2018, a poster display for PhD students and post-docs to promote their research activities and results.
With the increase in demand for wireless communication, the natural increase in demand for metamaterial technologies comes hand in hand. This event will delve into the rise in demand in order to come up with robust solutions.
Attendance is free of charge – but numbers are limited to the first 150 delegates – so please register early.
Places are filling up so please book early to avoid disappointment. To find out more about the free exhibition space please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
