What could a future with animate materials look like?

Imagine a future where roads can self-heal, tiny robotic molecules can assemble themselves into household objects, and living buildings can harvest carbon dioxide to generate power and purified water. Animate materials could make this a reality.



A block made from “living” building materials by CU Boulder’s Wil Srubar and his colleagues

Animate materials are human-made materials that are able to grow and adapt to their environment. Behaving like living systems, these materials have the potential to deliver major changes in our lives from infrastructure to medicine and clothing.

Led by your ideas, join our panellists as they discuss what animate materials are, how they could be used to shape our future lives, and the challenges that may lie ahead.

This event is a part of British Science Week 2021.

Have your say in advance

We are asking you to help create a “library of future materials”.

What animate materials do you think could exist in the future? Are there any materials with lifelike properties that you think could have a positive impact on society? Do you think there are any down sides to this technology and, if so, what are they? Find out more on how to submit your ideas.

Attending this event

The event will be livestreamed on the Royal Society YouTube channel on Wednesday 10 March at 6pm GMT
