The next Forum will be held on Tuesday 20th June 2017. The afternoon programme will include the award of the Armourers & Brasiers’ Materials Science Venture Prize and the 19th Kelly Lecture. In 2016, the Forum attracted not only an academic audience, but representatives from some 50 manufacturing companies.
Promoting Materials Science to Industry and Academia
The Armourers and Brasiers' Cambridge Forum is held annually at the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy in Cambridge with the aim of raising the profile of materials science in the UK academic and industrial communities, while being international in scope. The Forum attracts high-level involvement from industry, research councils and other influential bodies. It incorporates the Kelly Lecture and the Gordon Seminars, inaugurated in 1999 to mark the opening of the Gordon Laboratory in the Department. It is generously supported by the Armourers and Brasiers' Livery Company and nine other sponsors.
