Meeting Materials, initiated by the Dutch "Bond voor Materialenkennis", is an unique platform, bridging the gap between materials science, industry and young materials minded people. This internationally oriented conference includes a wide array of informative and enjoyable lecture sessions by renowned speakers from industry and academia, offers a choice of unique and exciting tours behind the scenes of world leading companies, special events, job and networking opportunities. To further stimulate cooperation and to form a platform for young material-minded people, Meeting Materials is organised every year.

In 2006 Meeting Materials was organised for the first time at Corus IJmuiden. The diverse programme was closed late in the evening with an exciting tour around the Corus production sites. DOW in Terneuzen hosted Meeting Materials 2007, closing the event with a tour around the impressive production site. The programme also included a trip to the old city of Ghent and a tour around the Centre for Research in Metallurgy & Flanders Materials Centre at the University of Ghent. Holst Centre in Eindhoven hosted Meeting Materials 2008 and SKF hosted Meeting Materials 2009.
