The University of Liverpool has been awarded a share of the Government’s £1 billion investment in science to establish Europe’s first Materials Innovation Factory. The multi-million pound centre, established in collaboration with Unilever, will develop a new generation of functional materials for science and industry to accelerate the research and development process. Creating unique suite of state-of-the-art, open access facilities, the project will generate new science to underpin the advanced manufacturing sector in the UK.
In the Leverhulme Research Centre for Functional Material Design we will drive a design revolution for functional materials at the atomic scale by fusing chemical knowledge with state-of-the-art computer science in a world leading interdisciplinary team.
Through our Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy, and N-STAR (Nuclear Science and Technology Applied Research) our Department of Chemistry, Department of Physics and the School of Engineering are collaborating with industry on renewable energy innovation.
