Message from Director
The past three months have seen significant progress in several Light Metals Flagship projects, some of them highlighted in this Update.
Scientific breakthroughs are critical to the development of landmark 'step-change' technologies. Such breakthroughs not only require good science but a cross-disciplinary approach.
For example, the Light Metals Flagship has already identified:
The Flagship is continuously addressing the challenge of converting such exciting breakthroughs into larger-scale technologies and profitable, commercial operating systems.
Our engagement with industry, government and research partners is crucial to this process of innovation.
Following the successful Titanium Industry Forum and Workshops that we held in April – featuring presentations from international experts and the involvement of the International Titanium Association – we are now planning an aluminium industry forum scheduled for August.
