Northumbria University

15th International Conference on Materials Processing and Characterization

The role of manufacturing in the world’s economy and societal development has long been established through their wealth creation activities. To deepen and broaden our knowledge of materials and to increase innovation and responsiveness to ever-increasing international needs, more in-depth studies of functionally graded materials/ tailor-made materials are needed at present. Energy, the environmental sustainability and healthcare have emerged as strategic priorities not only in research but in all aspects of our lives. The objective of this conference is to bring together experts from academic institutions, industries and research organizations and professional engineers for sharing of knowledge, expertise and experience in the emerging trends related to advanced materials processing and characterization, life-changing materials research with the applications in healthcare, renewable energy and circular economy.
