As   part   of   the   Strategic   Partnership   conference   2019,   the   intention   is   to   publish   a   special issue    of    the    journal    “Materials”     with    a    collection    of    papers    from    those    involved    in    the conference. The   submission   of   papers   is   open   to   anyone   involved   in   the   Strategic   Partnership and   we   actively   encourage   students   to   consider   submitting   their   work   to   this   special   issue. Please   note   that   Materials,   run   by   MDPI,   is   an   open   access   journal,   for   which   open   Article Processing   Charges   (APCs)   will   be   incurred.   Most   universities   have   funding   to   cover   APCs, so   please   investigate   this.   The   open   access   nature   of   Materials   also   means   that   the   papers are   immediately   available   for   inclusion   in   REF2021.   The   website   for   the   papers   can   be   found at: If there are any questions, please contact Dr Mark Whittaker at
