NIA was pleased to attend and exhibit at the Advanced Materials Show last week in the UK town of Telford. Co-hosted with Ceramics UK, the show provided a great opportunity for the NIA to present the work it is doing in supporting members to bring new nano innovations to the market. Several of the projects that  NIA is involved in (caLIBRATe and PATROLS) were also presented at the event with their latest results and upcoming events highlighted.

As part of the conference agenda, NIA Director Dr Claire Skentelbery chaired a session on Nanomaterial Development - Processing and Manufacturing Nanomaterials at Commercial Scale, which featured NIA members CPI and Cerion. This session showed how to realise the benefits of using nanomaterials in a wide range of industrial sectors and how the nanomaterials companies themselves can best enter the market with new materials at scale. With nanosafety still being a topic that concerns some potential consumers,  NIA also chaired a panel looking at safe-by-design, with NIA member the University of Birmingham.

NIA is grateful for everyone who passed by our stand to learn more about the Association and the work we do. We hope that we managed to show how our Association and its members work together to create great new and safe innovations and look forward in the near future to continuing some of the conversations started at the event.
