MATSUS successfully created a forum and channelled knowledge and tools in science and advanced materials technology to help provide solutions to the major problems in society, with a particular focus on sustainability.
The conference organised the first edition of STECH, the Sustainable Technology Forum, to align the academic world with industry. Companies from the private sector discussed the energy transition and innovation strategies and how they could be applied. STECH focused on topics such as hydrogen generation, recycling and circularity, energy generation, electric vehicles and innovation strategies.
