Materials Chemistry SIG

The aim of the Materials Chemistry Special Interest Group (SIG) is to enhance UK capability to develop and commercialise novel materials to meet future industry needs in multiple industry sectors. This recognises the importance of innovation in functional materials for UK and manufacturing industry.

Key objectives for the SIG will be to:

• Identify and develop priority areas for materials chemistry collaborative research which support UK manufacturing industry growth strategies.
• Work also with other Knowledge Transfer Networks to maximise breadth of connection with industry needs
• Accelerate development and expansion of KCMC.
• Underpin continued engagement and collaboration with knowledge intensive SME’s.
