Industry

The IMD is focused on delivering next generation advanced materials designed to tackle the major global problems in energy, healthcare, telecommunication and transport. To achieve these goals the IMD has developed core strategies for conducting research alongside industry to identify areas that can have real commercial and societal impact.

With interdisciplinary relationships across UCL, the global academic community and the industrial sector, the IMD can consider the fundamental science, sustainability, economic viability and technology transfer in all materials development. 

Having cutting-edge scientific facilities and researchers at both the UCL Bloomsbury campus and Harwell campus allows the IMD to explore both fundamental materials research and scale-up possibilities within a world-class setting. Find out more about our equipment and facilities here.

The IMD has been created to help join the worlds of academic research and commercial business. As such an understanding of commercial need and the opportunity for the exploitation of technology are at the heart of each relationship we develop. From healthcare to energy, the aviation sector to the built environment, the IMD aims to deliver step-changing materials.
