MATERIAIS 2017, aiming to explore the latest Progress in Materials Development and to bring Science Solutions to the World, provides the ideal forum for scientists, developers, engineers and companies to share their latest breakthroughs, achievements and views in the field of Materials.

MATERIAIS 2017 will be hosted by the University of Aveiro and will cover all areas of Materials from Functional Materials, Structural Materials and Processing Technologies to Characterisation and Modelling. During the 3 days, MATERIAIS 2017 will encompass: schools, scientific talks, debate sessions on cutting edge technologies, and a show case event of applications based on scientific development.

We will award for the second time the SPM Career and Recognition Award (Prémio SPM de Carreira e Reconhecimento) and we will also commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Department of Materials and Ceramics Engineering (DEMaC) of the University of Aveiro.
