This event has passed


Following on from the inaugural Sustainable Functional Materials (SFM) conference in Scarborough in April 2016, the second edition of the SFM conference was held in Weston-super-Mare in May 2018, focusing on the issues around the materials substitution and sustainability issues likely to become critical over the next decade for the functional materials and devices industry.


Sessions covering materials modelling, processing, properties and applications, and sustainability and environmental issues were introduced by invited speakers presenting on topics from energy harvesting materials and devices, to low temperature processing, bio-inspired synthesis, environmental and occupational risks within manufacturing processes, and recycling of waste materials.


Abstracts for the invited talks and contributed oral/poster presentations are collected in our SFM2018 overview (PDF).
