Advanced Materials

Carbon fibre composites, ceramics, nanomaterials and other advanced materials with high-performance characteristics are increasingly finding their way into automobiles, building materials, medical devices, IT and others. Advanced materials offer valuable properties that conventional materials just cannot provide. New materials can better adapt to extreme conditions, creating new opportunities for optimisation, beyond what was previously possible.

We work with industry, governments, research institutes and policy makers to develop a new generation of technologies

What do we do?

Through conducting technology scouting and impact studies, we can advise on how to smartly invest in advanced materials according to specific needs. Choosing the right materials will help you stay competitive in your industry by improving efficiency and safety, while meeting the environmental standards.

We connect the major players in the Advanced Materials field to develop and commercialise market-ready technologies.


Composite self-healing material

Shaping the next generation of technologies

Increasingly advanced societal demands require increasingly advanced solutions. Whilst it’s common to look for smart and digital solutions, these can only perform as well as the hardware that they’re built upon. Advanced materials can increase the capacity, within which, technologies can perform and improve.

We bring together different technologies and organisations to build safer, greener, smarter and better performing material-based solutions.

Shall we get started?

Advanced materials could be the answer to your problem. If you are thinking of using advanced materials to boost your technologies or you have a new market-ready technology, contact us.

  • We were able to identify the technical, financial and policy challenges hindering the smooth development of composite materials circularity, by bringing together material providers; designers & manufacturers; recyclers and end-users; and connecting them with experts in the most advanced recycling processes and smart-properties for novel materials. This allowed the development of a strategy that could translate into doubling the useful life of a product containing novel materials, a 50% reduction in composite waste landfilling, and a reduction in CO2 footprint by at least 30%.

  • By bringing together part suppliers, manufacturers, researchers and technology developers, we were able to make a significant impact in reducing the weight of cars in Europe by implementing material based solutions. This, in turn, reduces the carbon emissions of the vehicles. For every 100kg of weight reduced from a vehicle, 8.5g of CO2eq emissions are reduced per 100km.
