Performance through Materials Research
24 March 2022 at 13:30-16:15 (GMT+2, Finnish time)
Free online webinar

The Performance through Materials Research Webinar is organized by the PerforMat network funded by Academy of Finland. The focus is on the latest advances in the materials research. Especially the need for the improved performance and resource efficiency of advanced materials to overcome industrial challenges is highlighted.

The webinar is free of charge and arranged on-line (Zoom). The participation link and the recording of the webinar will be sent for the registered participants.
