Nanomaterials in Polymer Applications for the Transport Industry

7 July 2010, The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, London

The Materials KTN and personnel from both industry and academia held a roadmapping event on the use of nanomaterials in the transport sector. The objective was to determine the gaps in participants’ knowledge and ability, with a view to possibly providing SPARK Awards to help companies become more competitive. Presentations were given on the current activities in the field of nanomaterials for transport, before a one-day roadmapping session was carried out.
