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

It was one the most fresh outlooks on the topic of ceramic AM which I’ve experienced.

Excellent, thought-provoking session!
great to see a selection of young ceramics researchers coming through

Russ Thompson - Infineum

All speakers were strong with sound background. I liked their coverage of AM technology barriers for ceramic materials
