This unique 15th Anniversary HVM Conference 2017 and Fourth Graphene & New Materials Conference 2017 (GNM17) event series and business network provides a platform for understanding and investing in, partnering and innovating with new materials in industrial, defence, manufacturing & electronics sectors within “industry 4.0”. It is an ambitious platform to understand increased productivity and the trillion dollar question of investment in the relevant opportunities. Leading figures have said that the category will see high, long-run growth by enabling large productivity gains and new models. But when? And how? Who will benefit/lose out? At what ROI and how do we calculate it? What are the risks? What technical issues of deployment exist and how severe are they? What new business models will be used? Assessing winners and losers in a nonlinear change scenario is fraught; we will present a method and enable intelligent discussion.

Some of the most insightful leaders will provide executive briefing sessions and conference presentations.

Welcome from Director

We warmly invite you to join us in Cambridge, UK to update, discuss, understand, network, dine, meet, build relationships and invest or fund your business. Welcome to the the 4th HVM Graphene & New Materials Conference & Events 2017

I am thrilled to announce that the 15th anniversary HVM Conference and the 4th Graphene & New Materials events are now part of C4IR’s network of exchange and global event series which will offer valuable support and market access to those interested in understanding and investing in 4IR technologies and business models, in this case enabling with new materials such as graphene, Silicon Carbide and many other 2D, functional and organic materials. With complexity and (cyber and investment) risk high, new business models unfamiliar, ROI and market timing unclear, tech implementation challenging, yet investment urgency very high, the C4IR network and event series is a much needed, bold, global initiative to connect that I hope will resonate with the world’s corporate and financial investors, engineers and innovators. There is also a new membership network; I encourage you to join.

- Dr Justin Hayward, Investment Research Director, Cambridge Investment Research & Co-Founder, CIR

About CIR networks of exchange

CIR invites you to come to these high quality events. They are led by insightful, intelligent and experienced leaders - neither by paid, professional “inspirational keynote” speakers nor by famous people with agents. We select the best speakers (from our audience analytics or from recommendations) who have something to say, have thought it through, and want now to communicate it. They are likely to be in the value network strategically or directly in the market with a product or service. They are busy people who are actually “doing it”, usually now, or recently or soon. You gain the best networking value, developing your funds or business and corporate success by gaining insights and growing the size and quality of the value network.

CIR founded its expanding network in 2002, since when there have been 46 great conference days for 4,275 people, covering high value manufacturing and automation, new materials such as graphenes and functional materials, connectivity in energy, transport, homes and health, smart systems and intelligence analytics. We are perfectly placed to deliver this global platform for business and are excited by the journey into the future.
