Centre for Materials Research

New Research Ventures at the Materials Centre

The Materials Centre is to undertake two new research projects.

  • The Materials Group (Professor Andrew Abbott, Professor Karl Ryder, Professor Gawen Jenkin and Dr Dan Smith) has been acquired a £958k grant from the UKRI to research methods of creating a Circular Economy in Technology Metals. The project with Exeter, Manchester and Birmingham Universities together with the British Geological Survey aims to develop efficient extraction and recycling processes.  

  • Professor Abbott and Dr Rama Suntharalingam have successfully obtained a £176k Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Leicester-based company Food Attractions. The partnership aims to investigate moisture transport in foods and hence improve product quality and shelf life.
