Conferences and presentations

Sustainable Functional Materials 2018, 22-23 May 2018, Weston-super-Mare, UK

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.

SFM 2018 was again co-organised by the EPSRC projects MASSIVE (MAnufacture of Safe and Sustainable Volatile Element Functional Materials) and SUBST (Substitution and Sustainability in Functional Materials and Devices) and drew together the two project teams from the Universities of Surrey, Sheffield, Manchester and Queen Mary University of London, as well as delegates from across academia and industry.

Abstracts for the invited talks and contributed oral/poster presentations can be viewed on the SFM2018 webpage.
