Advanced Materials and Manufacturing

The single biggest issue for ensuring future supply chain resource sustainability is the availability of critical materials.

During the SCRS/  AREC workshop, participants from industry and academia expressed a strong interest in developing Advanced Materials and Manufacturing (AMM). It is also an area in which the University of Sheffield has extensive expertise.

Listed below are centres at the University of Sheffield that undertake AMM research.
