Materials Processing Institute
The Materials Processing Institute is a globally recognised research and innovation centre for the development and commercialisation of technology.
Visit the Materials Processing Institute stand to find out about accessing funding through the PRISM programme to support innovation in:
- Digital technologies
- Circular economy
PRISM is a programme of research and innovation for the UK steel and metals sector with funding provided through Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation. The PRISM programme is being delivered by the Materials Processing Institute
The Materials Processing Institute supports innovation through materials and process development, which is delivered by project teams utilising state-of-the-art equipment, laboratories, workshops, demonstration, scale-up and production facilities.
Research and Development is focussed on innovation in:
- Advanced materials
- Achieving industrial decarbonisation through a low carbon and hydrogen future
- Deploying new digital technologies
- Reducing waste through a circular economy.
The Institute provides a range of technology and R&D based services and consultancy. Scientists and engineers apply their expertise to progress innovation, develop materials, improve products and processes and commercialise technologies. Expertise extends to experimental and computer modelling, thermodynamics, instrumentation and control, materials microscopy, high temperature materials, chemical analysis, and digital technologies integration.
