Many international events have been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak and related measures. Below we provide updates on changes for events listed in our calendar of events (Agenda).
Many events have been postponed to next years or are held online/in a mixed (hybrid) format.
The World Materials Forum 2021 was held 17-19 June. One output was highlighting ten emerging technologies foreseen to reach industrial scale by 2030, that can best contribute to decouple economic growth from the current use of our natural resources. Spintronics is one of them, identified for its prospects to lower the power consumption of data storage and usage.Read more
