The 18th Annual Conference of the Sheffield Metallurgical and Engineering Association was held on the 7th and 8th July 2009 at the Endcliffe Conference Centre, University of Sheffield and attracted 98 delegates. The aim of the conference was to explore recent developments in the manufacture, evaluation and application of alloy steels, nickel-based superalloys and light metal components for critical engineering applications. Five technical sessions focused on nuclear energy, aerospace, energy supply chain and transport applications, and then considered some advanced technologies. © 2010 Maney Publishing. Source

The Harry Brearley stainless steel centenary conference and exhibition was held in June 2013. The opening address was given by John Rowe, Secretary General International Stainless Steel Forum. The Rt. Hon Michael Fallon, Minister of State for Business and Enterprise confirmed the importance of manufacturing to the UK economy. Currently business conditions are tough, and he emphasized the importance of a long term industry strategy, partnerships between Government and industry, and the need for strong manufacturing supply chains in for a successful future. Andrew Backhouse, Technical Manager Outokumpu Stainless Distribution UK, highlighted some key facts that there is a large requirement for stainless steel in nuclear power plants and associated waste handling and storage. Peter McDermott from Ancon Ltd gave a talk demonstrating the flexibility of stainless steels in construction applications. Graham Gedge from Arup Materials Consulting gave a range of examples where stainless steels have been used in impressive construction projects. Marcus Moll of Steel and Metals Market Research provided a very lively and thought provoking paper on 'The Next 100 Years: From Volume to Value'. Mick Steeper of Siemens Metals Technologies in his paper on Future Process Technologies and potential applications commented that stainless steel production had, in many areas, been the process development vehicle for the general steel industry.

The SMEA Conference attracted 116 delegates with a good balance of manufacturers and users and a strong representation from universities and research laboratories. The informal atmosphere provided a good opportunity for technical and social contact and networking. The excellent technical programme was supported by the Exhibition. On the evening of Tuesday, 21st June, Juergen Maier, Managing Director of Siemens Industry Sector UK, presented the 2011 SMEA Celebrity Lecture to an audience of over 200. He addressed the question 'Can manufacturing and engineering rebalance our economy?', explaining that manufacturing contributes ~11% of the gross domestic product, employs three million people and produces 55% of all UK exports. He addressed the many challenges for the future and highlighted the need for stronger forward planning, government support and implementation of new technologies. The continuing need for science and engineering graduates is critical if the UK is to retain its status as one of the world's leading manufacturing nations, the sixth largest manufacturer by output (Fig. 13). © 2012 Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
