About the conference
The Innovation Center of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design will organize its first Future Materials Conference during 15th-16th September 2022 in Budapest, Hungary. The event will provide a platform for designers, researchers, private sector representatives and students to present and discuss the latest trends in the materials industry via a combination of lectures, discussion sessions, and workshops.
We will explore the contemporary state and defining role materials play in reshaping our future. From experimental research and forward-thinking material developments to current collaborations and innovations within the professional design industry.
The two-day event will examine topics including (but not limited to):
- Materials living around us
- Material as medium and culture
- Industry's race for new materials
- Dynamic and high-tech materials
The conference aims at bringing together experts working internationally in the fields of biomaterials, augmented textiles and high-tech materials (and more) through presentations, physical exhibitions, workshops and discussions. We strongly believe in the powerful effect the cross-pollination of knowledge has in research and development therefore we are interested in encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration to further push the boundaries of material design culture.
