The Materials for Sustainable Development Conference (MAT-SUS, previously nanoGe Fall/Spring Meeting) will be held in València from the 6th to the 10th March 2023. This event will consist of a combination of symposia of basic and multidisciplinary science, and applied symposia focused on Sustainable Development areas. After five years of tradition, in this edition we want to go one step further by bringing together research and industry to contribute to solve major problems of society.

From 6th to 8th of March: The Materials for Sustainable Development Conference (MAT-SUS) will discuss traditional topics of the nanoGe Fall/Spring Meeting multisymposium conference such as halide perovskites, organic photovoltaics, solar fuels, nanocrystals & 2D materials, catalysis & electrocatalysis and energy storage.

From 8th to 10th of March: The S-TEC Valencia Forum (S-TEC)which will be focused on the industrial application in areas like clean energy transition (decarbonisation, sequestration and use of CO2 in industry, and hydrogen generation), sustainable chemistry and circularity, expansion of photovoltaics and sustainable transport.

The following areas are highlighted:

  • Decarbonization and the green transition: Energy, industry and transportation.
  • Sustainable and clean environment: Clean water, clean air.
  • Human health and safety: Diagnosis, therapeutics.
  • Materials industries of the future: Manufacturing.
  • Communication tools and education.


Research & industry with one common goal: sustainability
