Cambridge Forum

The Armourers & Brasiers Cambridge Forum is a one-day international conference held annually at the University of Cambridge.  The programme is devised by the universities Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy which has strong links with the Armourers & Brasiers' Company.  It brings together leading Materials Scientists from universities and industry and culminates in the prestigious annual Kelly Lecture.  It is also the venue for the announcement each year of the winner of the Armourers & Brasiers Materials Science Venture Prize.

Thanks to generous sponsorship, there is no charge for attendance at the academic proceedings.  Previous programmes for the Forum and details of Kelly Lecturers are available here,  where an online registration link is also available from April each year. 

The Armourers & Brasiers' Company is the lead sponsor of the Forum supported by its industrial partners:
