Launch of Centre for Energy Efficient Materials

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventExhibition


The Centre for Energy Efficient Materials brings together world-class facilities and expertise in advanced materials growth, characterisation and predictive modelling. Working with global leaders in information and communication technologies, energy conversion, solar energy and catalytic technologies, we are developing innovative energy-efficient materials to drive sustainable economic growth.

Our collaborative research capabilities are available to help solve the applied materials problems that are important for your business. Our research partners range from small, dynamic start-ups through to global technology leaders. You can take part in original research with the Centre for Energy Efficient Materials in a range of ways, from commissioning specific projects in one of our core research strengths, to joining collaborative research programmes.

The launch of the Centre for Energy Efficient Materials will take place on 28 March 2017 in the Berrick Saul Building at the University of York. It will provide an opportunity to learn more about what we offer and discuss with our members.
