Royal Society Event: February 2024

18 March 2024

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Julian M Allwood FREng and Professor Dierk Raabe.

Discussions on global warming and metal production suffer from a disconnect between environmental systems analysis which is technologically vague and materials innovations that cannot scale sufficiently to have meaningful impact. The meeting aimed to nucleate a new research community focused on scalable solutions that  allow the global metals system to function with zero emissions by 2050.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts are also available below. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
