“It’s been really interesting, I really enjoyed the first talk this morning, we had an overall perspective of the different segments of the ceramics industry that I’m siloed away as a researcher in the 3M specific focus, but being able to see the area of things that people are looking at are really interesting and then we are doing a lot of CMCs at 3M that someone was speaking earlier and hearing all the different segments of that was interesting. I only briefly got to walk around between those two, but the booths I did see were interesting, and I’m excited to see tomorrow”
Gareth Hughes, Senior Research Engineer, 3M
