Description of the Conference

The Materials for Sustainable Development Conference (MATSUS24) will be held in Laussane, Switzerland from the 26th to the 29th November 2024.The Materials for Sustainable Development Conference (MATSUS24) covers all aspects of materials science, chemistry and engineering which are crucial to develop a more sustainable future. Sustainability requires using resources at a rate which is lower than that at which those resources are generated and the “embodied energy” of manufacturing compared to the produced energy is at the heart of the matter. The drive for sustainability encompasses alternative energy technologies to mitigate problems with fossil-fuel technologies, and to increase energy efficiency, as well as mitigate undesirable environmental impacts resulting from technology and economic growth; the efficient use of materials, the formation of a healthy and safe environment, and more. The Conference consists on a combination of symposia of basic and multidisciplinary science, and applied symposia focused on Sustainable Development areas.
