    World Materials Forum

    Nancy, France

    This “Davos” style of conference is chaired by Philippe Varin, The World Materials Forum brings together CEO’s from large and medium-sized enterprises, including some of the largest and most innovative global companies active in the raw materials and innovative materials domain.

    This year’s theme is "Materials Efficiency", how to foster a resources lean economy. We will look at raw materials that may be critical during the coming 15 years, as during that time the global middle-class will double, meaning a further boost in resources intensive consumption. We will think about the performance criteria to evaluate improvements of our critical materials efficient use plans and monitor their results. We will present the improvement perspectives offered by new digital technologies or by innovation in the materials domain as well as in packaging, housing and mobility. We will close the Forum by a "public/ private" plenary session, with a debate between industry leader and public policy makers.
