Materials Chemisty Special Interest Group (SIG)
A Materials Chemistry Special Interest Group (SIG) has been funded by the Technology Strategy Board, with the aim of enhancing UK capability to develop and commercialise novel materials to meet future industry needs.
This recognises the importance of innovation in functional materials for UK and manufacturing industry.
The Materials Chemistry SIG will be led by The Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry (KCMC), working with the Chemistry Innovation and Materials KTN’s and in conjunction with companies driving innovation through the application of materials chemistry in their products and processes.
It aims to build on the track record of KCMC in delivering value from materials chemistry collaborative research.
The SIG has several objectives including the identification and development of priority areas for materials chemistry collaborative research that support growth strategies; working with other Knowledge Transfer networks to maximise connections; accelerate the expansion of KCMC and underpin engagement and collaboration with SMEs.
