We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.

Advanced Materials

Advanced materials are classified as completely new materials such as super-strong graphene, or developments of traditional materials such as lightweight metal alloys. These materials are essential to 21st century manufacturing in a UK market worth £170 billion per annum and representing 15 per cent of GDP. Research is becoming increasingly focused on producing advanced materials with targeted properties, from novel high temperature superconductors to newly-developed polymer nanocomposites.
