How will we meet humanity’s growing needs?

By the end of this century, the earth will be home to another four billion people. Materials science will be key to finding the solutions we need to protect valuable content, build more effectively, move more efficiently and care for ourselves more holistically.

Protect. Build. Move. Care. Join us in exploring innovations in these four domains at K 2019. Let’s meet challenges with courage. Innovate to create value. And move towards a circular economy.

If we question the things we can and can’t do, if we question how we do things, we can make big steps. May we welcome you to embrace this approach?

How can we protect our goods without harming our planet?

It’s important to protect what’s valuable. To meet the needs of a changing world, we must work to find solutions that are efficient, innovative and that can lead to a circular economy.
