Copper Alloys 2024

Scientific Conference on Copper Materials

Stockholm | Sweden | Oct 8-9 | 2024


Copper Alloys 2024: International arena for scientific and technical development – forum for copper alloys industries, universities and research institutions.

Copper Alloys is the biggest and broadest scientific forum focusing on copper materials sciences. The conference in 2024 aims to further strengthen the copper and copper alloys community by providing up to date research and reflecting necessary R & D approaches against the background of actual megatrends. 

The growing awareness for the need to deal with resources more responsibly, environment stability and health protection, as well as the unsecure geopolitical situation, has driven society, politics, and legislation to change agenda priority settings. Circular economy, fossil free energy, green deal, total defense, and other keywords represent this new paradigm, putting high pressure on industry and science to propose and develop innovative solutions. 



In response to related challenges, emerging applications and processes are needed, and universities, research institutes and market players along value chains must further strengthen their common efforts. The evolving materials research and development platforms put high demands on optimizing and complementing processing methods, closing gaps in global material flows and implementing loss-free recycling technologies. 

Copper Alloys 2024 will give a comprehensive look at challenges and developments of copper user industries and will allow active sharing of knowledge and opinions.
