However, developing a new material with an optimum set of properties involves trillions of possibilities. Which elements to choose, what should be the crystal structure, which is the best processing route, what are the optimum processing parameters etc.? The conventional approach is to start with one or two compositions, synthesize the material by one route, and perform characterization and property evaluation. </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span>This approach typically takes 20-30 years to develop a new material for real applications. On the other hand, the accelerated discovery approach starts with a large number of compositions and relies on high throughput synthesis, characterization, property evaluation, predictive machine learning modelling to rapidly screen a huge number of compositions<sup>1, 2</sup>.  </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span>This approach can cut the development time to ~3-4 years and identify completely new attractive compositions. We have deployed several advanced high throughput techniques such as additive manufacturing, spark plasma sintering, chemical flow synthesis, magnetron co-sputtering and machine learning to rapidly discover new high-performance materials<sup>1, <em></em>3</sup>. Compositions with an optimum magnetic-mechanical-electrical property set, required for next generation energy conversion machines, have been identified by our approach. Our results demonstrate the attractiveness of high throughput techniques for the quick development of high-performance materials. </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span><br /></span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span><strong>BIO</strong></span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><b>Dr. Varun Chaudhary</b> is a Senior Research Fellow at the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore.

Magnesium alloys are indeed distinctly promising candidates for structural applications throughout the automotive, aerospace, and electronics industries. Magnesium alloys are biodegradable and have an elastic modulus analogous to that of a bone, and thus, they are also being considered for use in tissue engineering, orthopaedics, and cardiology. </div> <div> </div> <div>Nonetheless, the widespread use of cast alloys in such applications has been hindered by their (1) relatively poor degradation characteristics (due to magnesium’s reactive nature) and (2) limited formability (due to insufficient deformation modes and strong basal texture). Exploring the potential of alternative manufacturing routes to produce the next generation of alloys with the desirable physical properties can hence be significant for a wide range of sectors ranging from biomedical devices to complex lightweight consumer goods, and to other emerging technologies. </div> <div> </div> <div>For instance, the design freedom of additive manufacturing can entirely address the magnesium-alloy formability issue, as it enables the production of near-net shape products and eliminates the need to further form or shape the alloys. Besides, the control over process parameters can yield alloys with tailored microstructures and properties treatments. Herein, some of the challenges and benefits of using additive manufacturing for producing functional magnesium alloy components will be discussed. </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div><b>BIO</b></div> <div> </div> <div><b>Marco Esmaily</b> received his PhD in Materials Science from Chalmers University of Technology in 2016.

While we understand the combined potential, there is still poor understanding of how companies should embrace digital transformation to make it successful and sustainable, and the role that lean plays in it. In this paper, we investigate how manufacturing companies embark upon digital transformation and how being lean might affect it. Our findings show the significant role of lean in driving digital transformation. We identify two patterns, namely Sustaining digital transformation pattern, characterized by the pervasive role of lean culture with small and horizontal digital changes, involvement of people and willingness to maintain continuous process improvement, and Disruptive digital transformation pattern, characterized by few and large digital steps that imply a disruptive and radical change in the company system. The relevance of the research is to support companies to prepare properly the introduction of Industry 4.0, and to design a successful pattern for digital transformation that really exploit industry 4.0 technologies.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><b>BIO</b></div> <div><b>Matteo Rossini</b> is a Senior Researcher and Assistant Professor of Operations Management and innovation in action LAB at Politecnico di Milano.

For example, Germany will use high voltage direct-current (HVDC) power cables insulated with next generation cross-linked low density polyethylene (XLPE) to transfer a vast amount of renewable energy from north to south with minimal losses. <br />This will facilitate Germany’s green-energy transition (“Energiewende”). The presentation will give an overview of the development of next generation XLPE-based insulation material, which can be used up to a world record operating voltage of 640 kilovolt (kV).  </span><br /></div></span></div> <div><br /></div></span></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/Pages/Materials-for-Tomorrow-2022-Materials-Science-for-Sustainability.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/Pages/Materials-for-Tomorrow-2022-Materials-Science-for-Sustainability.aspxMaterials for Tomorrow 2022: Materials Science for Sustainability<p>Chalmers Conferens Centre, RunAn, Chalmers Campus Johanneberg, Gothenburg.</p><p>​SAVE THE DATE: The topic of the 2022 Materials for Tomorrow will be Materials Science for Sustainability and cover all aspects of the Wallenberg Initiative Material Science for Sustainability, WISE.
