Market Analysis

7th Annual congress on material research and technology

Theme:  Proliferating the limitations of materials


Materials Science and Technology (MST) is a field of technology that encompasses the spectrum of materials types and how to use them in manufacturing. Materials span the range: metals, ceramics, polymers (plastics), semiconductors, and combinations of materials called composites. We live in a world that is both dependent upon and limited by materials. Everything we see and use is made of materials: cars, airplanes, computers, refrigerators, microwave ovens, TVs, dishes, silverware, athletic equipment of all types, and even biomedical devices such as replacement joints and limbs. All of these require materials specifically tailored for their application. Specific properties are required that result from carefully selecting the materials and from controlling the manufacturing processes used to convert the basic materials into the final engineered product. Exciting new product developments frequently are possible only through new materials and/or processing. New materials technologies developed through engineering and science will continue to make startling changes in our lives in the 21st century, and people in Materials Science and Engineering will continue to be key in these changes and advances. These engineers deal with the science and technology of producing materials that have properties and shapes suitable for practical use. Activities of these engineers range from primary materials production, including recycling, through the design and development of new materials to the reliable and economical manufacturing for the final product. Such activities are found commonly in industries such as aerospace, transportation, electronics, energy conversion, and biomedical systems. The future will bring ever-increasing challenges and opportunities for new materials and better processing. Materials are evolving faster today than at any time in history. New and improved materials are an "underpinning technology" - one which can stimulate innovation and product improvement. High quality products result from improved processing and more emphasis will be placed on reclaiming and recycling. For these many reasons, most surveys name the materials field as one of the careers with excellent future opportunities

Why Berlin, Germany?

Berlin is a world city of culture, politics, media and science. Its economy is based on high-tech firms and the service sector, encompassing a diverse range of creative industries, research facilities, media corporations and convention venues. Berlin serves as a continental hub for air and rail traffic and has a highly complex public transportation network. The metropolis is a popular tourist destination. Significant industries also include IT, pharmaceuticals, biomedical engineering, clean tech, biotechnology, construction and electronics

Parks, lakes and forests comprise around one third of Berlin’s total area.  This makes Berlin the perfect destination if you want to combine your city sightseeing with some nature related activities like cycling, kayaking and hiking or even if you just want to lie under a tree and read a book. Apart from above facts, Berlin is known as the Mecca of engineering and technology.  Highest number of researchers and academicians are found in Berlin and a wide range of efficient business networks and centre of excellence are found in Berlin.

Berlin is home to world orchestras, museums, renowned universities, entertainment venues and is host to many sporting events. Its urban setting has made it a sought-after location for international film productions. The annual Berlinale Film Festival is one of the highlights during February, which attracts celebrities and stars from around the world and the features previewed here are often some of the best. Which neverending nightlife, what’s better time to visit Berlin?

Why to attend?
