Future Leaders
Science & Research

Poster session

Are you a Future Leader, scientist, post doc or graduate student in Frontier Materials?

For the first time, in collaboration with MRS (Materials Research Society) and ICN2 (Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology) PUZZLE X is inviting early-career scientists, postdocs and graduate students working on the bleeding-edge of Frontier Materials Research and Innovation to present their research posters at PUZZLE X.

The purpose of the poster session is to showcase the scientific researchers, communicators and students who are working on cutting-edge materials research.

PUZZLE X is the international stage for Frontier Tech where the scientific leaders of the future can communicate their research to Frontier Tech stakeholders including governments, industry leaders, tech hubs, materials companies, and civil societies.


Bringing the leaders in material science and industry together:
PUZZLE X 2022 speakers:
- Sir Kostya Novoselov (NUS)
- Dr. Dr. Hiroshi Ishii (MIT)
- Dr. Vladimir Falko (University of Manchester)
- Dr. Anne Matsuura (Intel)
