Showcasing Emerging Technologies Metamaterials

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), in partnership with Innovate UK, is organising this UK Metamaterials Community Workshop and Technology Showcase to exhibit emerging metamaterials technologies from across the UK academic community to industry and to explore UK opportunities in developing and exploiting metamaterials. Metamaterials are engineered structures designed to interact with electromagnetic radiation or acoustics in a desired fashion. They usually comprise an array of structures smaller than the wavelength of interest. These so-called meta-atoms can interact with the electric and magnetic components of light in a way that natural atoms do not. This inclusive event (the latest in a well-received and successful series) will bring together key stakeholders and the broader UK community in the field of metamaterials to address how this valuable expertise can be directed to explore key growth markets, market size, potential for growth and collaboration and new market opportunities in the areas of: Novel Antennae Acoustic and vibrational damping Optics The showcase is part of the KTN’s Showcasing Emerging Technologies (SET) series, and the event will build upon the successful UK Metamaterials Community event held at Brown's, London, in January 2018.

Our aim is to help disseminate emerging metamaterials technologies that can be commercialised or have a positive impact on society or the environment and to develop a structured programme of support for the UK metamaterials community. We will facilitate new collaborations with industry and end users to take these technologies forward and apply them in the development of new products and services. Additionally, we will provide support and facilitation to enable collaborative projects with industry to identify and apply for grant funding to take those projects forward. The event will bring together academics and industrialists – structured with presentations – but designed to focus on funding, strategic interactions, novel collaborations and real product development opportunities – to be first to market.
There will be exhibition space for demonstrations and networking and poster displays for PhD students and postdocs to promote their research activities and results.
