Materials in Dentistry – Free SeminarPosted on Tuesday, January 31st, 2012 in Event, News, Polymer seminars| Share this article
The Materials KTN and The University of Sheffield are organising this free one day seminar, held on 6 March 2012 at the University of Sheffield, UK, to highlight some of the current advances in the science, technology, engineering and design of advanced materials used in dental applications.
The event will include presentations from academic researchers, industrial representatives, clinicians and regulatory bodies. For those new to dentistry, presentations will cover information on the drivers that dentistry faces and how existing materials fall short.
With ample time for networking in the programme, this event will be a one-stop-shop for dental professionals and researchers to learn about new technological advances in the field of materials for dentistry whilst at the same time making new contacts.
A key goal for KTNs is to capture information on industry needs together with possible solutions. We will therefore be inviting attendees to provide input on various questions with a view to identifying potential R&D projects and the Materials KTN commits to support submissions to the Technology Strategy Board based on any R&D project identified on the day.
