Creating advanced materials to address the future needs of industries through the design of new materials and modification of existing ones.
We research the advanced materials needed by the industries of tomorrow.
We will discover and deploy materials in four priority areas: sustainable living looks at improving the use, recovery, remediation and recycling of resources; extreme conditions focuses on improving human health and wellbeing, protection (for example, against heat), and performance, as well as the aerospace, automotive and construction industries; devices covers sensors, point-of-care diagnostics, (opto) electronics, plasmonics and integrated photonics; and, materials on the nanoscale examines applications ranging from biomaterials to multifunctional textiles.

What are advanced materials?
The term ‘advanced materials’ refers to the modification of existing materials or the creation of new ones to achieve superior performance. The materials can be structural and functional, inorganic, organic or inorganic-organic hybrids. They can be classified as soft matter or hard matter depending on their characteristics.
